Quotes by Dr. Jon Benson

“There is initially a close link between stress and depression.”

“There’s a biological (hereditary) component, but anyone is susceptible.”

“Depression is not a spiritual disease. It does have an effect on your relationship with God, just like it has an effect on every other relationship.”

“Nobody ever heals in isolation.”


50% of depression cases go untreated. If you are experiencing signs of depression, there is hope! Reach out for help. If you are in the Clark County, WA area please visit our counseling referrals page and we can connect you with a counselor.
