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.
