Youth Workshop — Elissa Lin Rathe
It’s not unusual for us to experience feeling down at times or discouraged, especially with all the pressures and expectations surrounding us. However, for many, this is something more serious than just an occasional sadness. Are you or know someone who is overly worried about things that others around you don’t seem to be? Before you go diagnosing or self-diagnosing, let’s learn what the real signs are and what we can do about helping someone or ourselves who may be struggling these ways. In this workshop, we will tackle anxiety and depression from Biblical and psychological perspectives. We’ll also gain a better understanding of the nature and causes of anxiety and depression, and what the Bible says how we can battle against them. Practical and scriptural steps will be delineated to help us fight against these common issues.
