How to Love Those with Mental Illness

I’m so excited to share this brand-new resource guide and 5-day devotional for loving people with mental illness.

This is the perfect beginner resource for church leaders, school administrators, parents, friends - literally anyone who cares about someone with a mental illness and wants to know how to love them well.

And here’s a newsflash: since 1-in-5 will encounter some kind of mental illness in their lifetime, that means nearly ALL of us know someone who could use a little extra love.

To download this free resource guide and 5-day devotional, just sign up with your email address below. You'll also receive my free monthly newsletter, with resources for your mental, spiritual, and emotional health.
