Although he holds a doctorate in depression, author Greg L. Russ chose to write this book from a patient’s point of view. Having suffered five clinical bouts, Russ offers a graphic look inside the dark abyss while chronicling the insights he learned when his depression intersected God’s mercy. The book extends an invitation to families, friends, churches and their pastors to become part of the comforting process. Enlightening and encouraging, Help! Someone I Love is Depressed will speak to the church, medical and counseling professionals, military and the general public.


Greg L. Russ is a graduate of the University of South Carolina, New Orleans and Fuller Seminaries. At Fuller, He did his doctoral work under the guidance of Dr. Archibald Hart. As God progressively healed Greg’s bouts of depression, he became inspired to befriend and comfort others suffering this dreaded disease. Equipping the church with practical insights, he is hopeful they will join medical practitioners and counselors in becoming part of the healing process. He enjoys spending time with his family, watching football and backyard bird watching. Russ and his wife, Miriam, live outside of Greenville, South Carolina.
