Depression is real. Hope is real too.
The Depression Support Coalition’s mission is to inform, educate, support, and cultivate a community of spiritual hope for those affected by depression – as well as their families. Formed in 2009, there are now 13 congregations in the south metro area that are a part of this coalition.
