A star on the reality TV show "Outdaughtered" has finally decided to go to therapy for depression thanks in part to the encouragement of a Nashville pastor. 

Adam Busby, the Texas father of six daughters whose family is the focus of the TLC show, traveled to Nashville in the latest episode to meet with Pastor Jarrid Wilson to talk about his struggles.  

JARRID WILSON: Former Nashville Pastor Jarrid Wilson dies by apparent suicide, wife reports

Last year, Wilson and his wife, Juli Wilson, founded Anthem of Hope, a nonprofit that wants to better equip churches to help those with mental health issues like depression, anxiety and self harm. 

Wilson also is the author of several books, including "Jesus Swagger" and "Love is Oxygen." He and his wife live in the Nashville area with their two sons.  

In the recent episode of "Outdaughtered," Wilson and Busby sit across from each other at The Lodge Franklin, a meeting and event space in Williamson County, and share their experiences. Busby is hesitant to go to therapy. 

"I don't know if I'm ready for that," Busby said. 

Wilson prods him to take that next step, sharing his own experience with depression following the birth of his first son and the toll it took on his family. 

"Depression, one of the things it wants to attack and take hold of is me being present with my family," Wilson said. "Me not getting help didn't just hurt me it hurt everybody else around me."

Busby admits he's scared.

"Don't give yourself that burden to try to fix yourself because it's not just about you now. It's about your kids and your wife," Wilson said.

The trip to Nashville forged a relationship between the two families.    

Busby's wife, Danielle, share her appreciation for the Wilson's help. 

It wasn't all serious. 

And, it doesn't sound like it'll be the last visit they'll make to Tennessee.
