Living with Depression and Anxiety: 7 Coping Strategies that Work (by Steve Austin)


I was 29-years-old, a husband, father, and pastor when I nearly died by suicide. The depression and anxiety were crippling, but I had never been to a mental health professional or talked with anyone outside the church about the mental anguish ​that suffocated me on a daily basis.

I thought my only way out was suicide. Thankfully, suicide wasn't the end of my story.

In the past seven years, since the darkest days of my life, I have worked really hard to recover from a suicide attempt. During that time, I've learned 7 coping strategies that work. If you live with depression and/or anxiety - I know this free e-book can help when it feels like you're drowning.
