Hi. I'm Steve Austin​ - an inspirational speaker, suicide survivor, and author. ​

What brings YOU here?

Do you live with mental illness or love someone who does? I know how tiresome, scary, and lonely that can feel, because I was a pastor when I nearly died by suicide.

The sad truth? In 2020, every 40 seconds, someone around the globe will die by suicide. And for every 1 who dies, 25 more attempt.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Especially in the Christian circles where I grew up, mental health just wasn't something we ever talked about. Or when we did, it was mentioned in some really harmful ways that are just plain wrong.

The good news: there is hope for your mental health, and there's an entire online community of ​grace-givers who ​have created a space where everyone is safe to belong.

​What They Say...

​Andre Henry - Former Managing Editor at RELEVANT Media Group

​​​Steve's candor is tempered by a grace and compassion that makes it safe for others to be honest about what they're experiencing and to also encounter hope. ​Steve offers himself as a companion to those who feel like they are drowning, not as a lifeguard but as a coach saying "Hey. You can swim!"

​Christy - ​School Teacher & Coaching Client

​Life coaching is one the best investments we've made for our family. Steve has the ability to help you draw up plans that fit the design for where you are in your journey. ​​You just need a gentle (or sometimes straight forward) push in the right direction. Steve is that guiding force and knows what he is doing.

Ed Bacon - ​Author, 8 Habits of Love

​In the case of every wound he knows, Steve has turned that wound into a source of healing power. That is why he is one of the most mobilized, energized, walking witnesses of New Life I have ever known.
