I’m Coming Out & Standing Up

I’ve been public about my struggle with depression over the last 12 years, as well as our journey with our son’s diagnosis with bipolar disorder. We don’t know that the diagnosis will stick long term, and as anyone would, we hope it won’t. Nonetheless, I’ve learned there is much more to mental illness than the Church has allowed many to believe.

HealthyPlace.com is a powerful resourcing website encouraging those with experience to stand up in an effort to break the stigma that comes with mental illness. I’ve decided to join this effort, and hope it encourages others, especially pastors & church leaders, to Stand Up For Mental Illness as well.

Anyone else want to stand up?

    Thank You Paul for your openness and honesty. Many pastors are unwilling to admit they struggle with mental health issues. Thank you for leading the way.
