"This well-designed study provides more striking results than previous research investigating the role that religion and spirituality
can play in limiting depression," said John Peteet, M.D., an associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and
fellowship site director at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's Adult Psychosocial Oncology Program, who was not involved in
the study. "Hopefully, it will make some psychiatrists more aware of and open to exploring spiritual resources in meeting
the needs of their patients."
