RENEWAL is designed to offer hope and comfort to people suffering from mental health disorders or addiction disorders, and support to the people who love them. Our approach is based on respect for the dignity of the people we serve and the belief that through a faith-based program, life-changing results are possible.

RENEWAL: Christian Treatment and Recovery is an optional treatment supplement available through Brookhaven Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma. At Brookhaven, we understand that when you are suffering from an eating disorder, a personality disorder, a behavioral health disorder or chemical dependency, life can seem utterly hopeless. It can cause Christians to feel abandoned and distant from God. However, by strengthening your spirituality, in conjunction with our professional medical services, you can experience results that you never thought were possible.

RENEWAL is based on the belief in:

God who created us and loves us (Genesis 1:26)
Jesus Christ who redeems us (Isaiah 53:5)
The Holy Spirit who guides us (Acts 1:8)

When you participate in RENEWAL, you’re part of something much bigger than yourself. Brookhaven clients receive expert care from our team of mental professionals. Treatment is solution-focused and success-oriented. Our goal is to minimize symptoms, help individuals address life problems and live fulfilling lives. Sometimes healing requires a helping hand.

What is Depression?

What exactly is depression and why is it a problem?  Depression is a mental health issue that people may experience.  Depression can feel as if you are in a deep, dark hole that, no matter how hard you try, you can’t seem to escape.  There are many potential causes of depression, and for some it can be hard to eliminate.  Depressive symptoms can occur because of the weather due to lack of light in the house.  Depression can also feel like no matter what you do, it isn’t the right thing.  Some people believe depression is something you can control while others believe it is caused by a chemical imbalance.  The kind of help you get will vary based on what you feel will work right for you.

Psalm 34:18 says, “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”  (NIV) Proverbs 17:22 says, “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” (NIV)  When someone is depressed, they need someone who will encourage them and help them through this time.  Getting psychiatric help can increase understanding about what causes them to be depressed, how to deal with depression and helpful ways to spot the signs before it progresses in severity.  It is important to remember you can get help with depression if you get Christian help along with learning how to deal with it.  You don’t have to live with depression.  You can learn what may trigger it and how to deal with it effectively.  When you know it is weather, situations or people, you can learn how to make the necessary changes to either prevent it or keep depression to a minimum.

Depression is not your fault.  Learning how to deal with this mental issue properly and taking care of your mental health can make all the difference.  When you take care of yourself, you will feel better overall and will want to keep that feeling going.  There is nothing wrong with finding the right kind of help when it comes to your depression.  Make sure you have people who will help keep an eye out for anything that triggers your depression.  Then they can help you either get the right help or make the necessary changes to try and keep depression at bay.
