If you haven’t noticed, we have a newsletter that we occasionally ask via a pop up for people to sign up for. We call it our monthly newsletter, but honestly, we haven’t used it yet.

That is, until now.

Starting the end of this month, we will begin to send out a monthly newsletter to those who decide to opt-in. In fact, we now have a page dedicated to the newsletter for those who want to sign up which we will is in conjunction with social media.

So what’s the purpose of this monthly email?

I get it, I might up for a monthly email and most times, it’s useless stuff that is just trying to get your attention. We don’t want to do that. Instead, the newsletter will come with a lot of stuff, including:

  • Exclusive mental health and church content
  • Advanced access to new projects with first dibs on participating or getting your hands on the items
  • Free digital devotional
  • Free one-on-one consulting with incorporating mental health with your church or addressing issues at your church

With that being said, we have a super secret project we won’t be releasing for months, but want people to beta test it at their church. But we will only be giving this offer to people on the newsletter. So if you are interested in what is coming or want to be part of this beta test and are not already on the newsletter list, sign up below.

  1. I am a church gal who became homeless due to mental illness, and I cannot tell you how excited and grateful I am that you are talking about this issue!!! I am no longer homeless, but it was NOT the church or the family of God that helped stabilize my life. Abba has healed my relationship with Himself and is now working on my relationship with the church. I have chosen to forgive, but I still have some healing from the emotional wounds of being rejected (and left for homeless!!!) by the church of my childhood due to my “mental illness.” It hurts to be misjudged, devalued, and dismissed by people, but God’s word is true… ALL things work FOR our good, and my experiences have proven God’s love ALSO INCLUDES ME, even though my life was shrouded in the dark symptoms of mental health disorders. God loves ALL of us, and that’s what matters. Thank you again, from a fellow Buckeye who has survived, and is now moving into thriving. There IS still life AFTER the diagnosis of mental health disorders. I am an overcomer, by the blood of THE LAMB, and the word of my testimonies. God bless you, and again; thank you!!!

    • That’s our goal, to empower churches to love more and reach those who are hurting. What would you like to see talked about with regards to mental health and the church that might be missing so far?

      • Instability of emotions is the hallmark of many mental health challenges, and in many cases, people are unable to sustain employment while dealing with signs and symptoms that are further compounded by trauma and ACEs.
        Treating people with respect, dignity, and compassion is the first MUST, followed by loving and non-judgmental emotional support.
        Churches are at the forefront of “soul work,” but wounded souls are housed in physical bodies that require food, rest, and stable housing.
        Practical issues are the ones that lead people to homelessness. Rent, utilities, medical care, transportation, food, clothing, and emergency pet care are some of the issues that need to be brought to the attention of the shepherds who are willing to take responsibility for the entire flock…ESPECIALLY those who are hurting.
        In my experience and opinion, the church needs to be serving as the “Social Services Department” for the kingdom of God.
        My personal passion and mission is to help CREATE that reality because I know what it’s like to fall through the cracks in systems that don’t prioritize the needs of critically wounded people.
        The longer-term issue that will take time and diligent education is the demonization of mental illness. Yes, there can be a measure of demonic manifestation in mental health disorders, but we need to recognize the difference in the demonic activity and the symptoms of unresolved trauma.
        This is a complex issue that requires a long-term, well-planned strategy that begins with a meeting of like minds.
        Many churches proclaim that they are a hospital for wounded souls, but many of them have zero knowledge about hospitals.
        Many of God’s people are being destroyed for lack of knowledge, and my goal is to share the stories of how I know that, and my hopes to become a repairer of our breaches in ministering to those with mental health challenges.
        Thank you for the opportunity to join this important conversation!!
