In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, multiple media reports have surfaced suggesting America is being pushed into a “mental health crisis.” People have been hit by isolation, anxiety and fear coupled with daily death totals. Calls to suicide hotlines have reportedly increased significantly. This is compounded by the recent protests and riots on the streets.
On today’s program, Dr. Bulkley spoke of the leading causes of depression, the connection between depression and suicide, and reasons why people commit suicide. He explained the importance of getting into God’s Word, praising God, the necessity for individuals to change their thought process and how to do it, and the important role of the pastor and the church. He also addressed the important role parents have in addressing current situations with their children with a Biblical focus.
Indeed, God has provided everything that pertains to life and godliness!
