Facing depression together

Today I read through a small booklet (MiniZine!) Facing depression together.
Matthias Media is to be commended for publishing this booklet because it puts mental issues on the table [at least in Australian churches and Christian bookstores].

The booklet does not give suggestions for further reading about mental health issues but does encourage seeking professional medical help. [It does contain a review of Martyn Lloyd-Jones book Spiritual Depression, but points out "A more appropriate title would have been `Spiritual Discouragement'].
The articles from a 2009 issue of Christianity Today deal with the issue in a deeper and more thorough manner (see this earlier blog post).
