I saw this post below on a Facebook page of a person who professes to be a Christian.

This has been heavy on my heart since I read it.

Depression is a chemical imbalance. It is not a lack of contentment or happiness. I believe God created medicines to help those who need help with this issue.

These types of statements and attitudes are the reason that so many people delay seeking treatment for their mental health issues.

I have had someone I loved and respected in the church make several snide comments about “Prozac moments” to me until I finally quietly said “I have taken Prozac for many years and it has been a literal lifesaver for me”.

In case you haven’t noticed, we are in a mental health crisis in this country. Instead of judging those who need help, how about we give them our love and support?

Let’s normalize prioritizing mental health and loving and supporting each other.
