- The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) reported in 2002 that 9.5% of American adults currently have a depressive disorder.
- IMS Health, a pharmaceutical information and consulting firm, reported that sales of antidepressants increased 73% from 1998 to 2002.
- Multiple research studies have shown that diet, exercise, and life style changes are often as effective in treating depression as medication alone.
- Depression patients on drug therapy alone experience a relapse rate ranging from 75% - 80%, while the relapse rate for patients receiving drug and cognitive therapy ranges from 25% to 40%.
- Brain imaging techniques (MRIs & PET scans) show that drug therapy and cognitive therapy change the brain in fundamentally different ways. "Cognitive Therapy" focuses on how we interpret our interactions with the world.
- The Gospel or "Good News" of Jesus Christ is a fundamentally positive way of interpreting our world and provides a unique way of resolving the distorted styles of thinking identified in secular "Cognitive Therapy".
