---- — Since 2010, the Seventh-day Adventist Church has offered a depression and anxiety recovery program that is both unique and successful. The program will return with the free introductory meeting being held on Monday, Oct. 7.
With more than 19 million people in the U.S. suffering with depression and anxiety annually, the need for help is huge.
The depression and anxiety recovery is not just for people with depression. It is valuable for anyone who suspects they may have depression and/or anxiety, as well as anyone who may want to learn how to help someone else. It is also worth 1.4 CEU credit hours for continuing education.
Gwen Simmons, director, has gone through the program and says, “It is so much more than a support group. This program brings recovery. Not just a band-aid to treat symptoms. It’s exciting to watch participants learn and practice basic changes that help them break free from the trap of depression and anxiety.”
Dr. Neil Nedley, a doctor of internal medicine who has authored “Proof Positive,” “The Lost Art of Thinking,” and “Depression: the Way Out,” is the speaker, whose presentations will be by DVD. Dr. Nedley has based his recovery program on 19 years of research and clinical experience helping his patients. To learn more about Dr. Nedley, visit www.nedlevhealthsolutions.com.
The free introductory session, which explains details about how the program works, will be held on Monday, Oct. 7 at 7 p.m. at the Seventh-day Adventist Church at 20124 205th Ave. in Centerville. For more information, call (641) 856-3176 or go to www.centerville23.adventistchurchconnect.org.
