“Bad Christian.” “You aren’t a ‘good’ Christian if you can’t beat your depression.” “Depression doesn’t exist; it is not a real thing.” “You don’t have enough faith.” “You just need to trust in God.” “You need to believe more.” “You need to pray more.” “You are letting the devil in.” “You are possessed.” “You need to work on your relationship with Jesus more.” These are statements I have been told privately or through sermons and books by Christian leaders.

Statements like these further the downward spiral of a depressed individual and hinder them from getting real care. There is even a Christian health insurance group that will not cover anything related to depression or mental illness because they do not believe in it.
