Greg Vandagriff

Greg Vandagriff participated in this work because he was anxious to share the transformation that the Atonement and correct medications have made in his life.  He was depressed for his entire adolescence, and it was only during his mission that he finally received the correct medical treatment.  He particularly wanted to reach those youth who don't understand why they can't function at their best and who don't feel that they fit in,  who are, unknowingly suffering profound depression.  After filling an honorable mission in Atlanta, Georgia, he returned to BYU where he is currently a student.  He also works in sales for a computer peripherals company.

David P. Vandagriff

David P. Vandagriff joined the Church in Chicago when he was twenty-four.  The first Latter-day Saint he ever met, G.G. Vandagriff, would become his wife and co-author of this book.  G.G. encouraged David to write about the experience of being married to a depressed spouse and being the parent of a depressed child.  He received his undergraduate degree from Northwestern University and graduated with honors from Pepperdine University SChool of Law.  He has practiced law in California and Missouri and worked as an executive in several technology companies.  He has served as a Bishop twice, as a member of a Stake Presidency and on three High Councils.
