Unlearn the Lies: A Guide to Reshaping the Way We Think about Depression addresses seven lies that infiltrate the hearts and minds of so many people, causing them to suffer in silence. Throughout the book, Abraham Sculley courageously shares the personal struggles and challenges he faced to unlearn the lies he told himself after being diagnosed with clinical depression in college.
As a young, black, Christian man, the pressures of his religion, culture, and society planted seeds that seemed impossible to uproot. However, through his commitment to doing the work for his mental health, he was able to overcome the depths of depression. This book is designed to expose the lies that you may be telling yourself about depression, walk you through the steps of unlearning those lies, and give you practical tools and tips to achieve optimal mental, emotional, and spiritual health.
