Mental illness is common – one person in six will suffer depression at some point. Christians are often fearful of it, seeing it as a matter for guilt or, too frequently, blame and aggressive prayer. Should Christians accept psychiatric help – and what does this imply about their faith? Dr David Enoch, an experienced psychiatrist, explains what forms mental illness takes, why Christians are not immune, how various conditions can be identified, and what help is available. He discusses the roles of therapist and pastor, and the wisest responses the church can offer. "The sufferer is never forsaken by God," says the author. "God has given us the knowledge and medication to heal the sick."
