50% of adults will develop depression, anxiety, self-harm, eating disorders, bipolar disorder, PTSD, borderline personality disorder, schizophrenia, or some other mental illness in their lifetime. This staggering reality can feel daunting, but there is HOPE…

About 2 weeks ago I was invited by Kay Warren to a beautiful private luncheon. Where Kay openly shared about her loss but wanted to offer hope to those who might be suffering. I LOVED Kay’s opens and willingness to help spread the word about Mental Illness and break the stigma of it as well. It runs rapid in the military, almost like its normal. Kay has put together a conference to help with churches, families, friends, etc. To help provide resources for those suffering, offering them hope.
I even had the opportunity to meet RICK WARREN author of A Purpose Driven Life!!!!
Kay and Rick Warren want to not only share their story but provide help and resources to the those suffering with mental illness. Let’s be part of breaking the silence and stigma by joining Kay and Rick Warren on October 7–9, 2015 for Saddleback Church’s Gathering on Mental Health and The Church. These three days are packed with practical help and hope for individuals affected by mental illness, their loved ones, church leaders, and mental health professionals. It’s time to step up together and create a pathway to HOPE. It’s time to offer a place of refuge, love, and compassion for those who need it most. It’s time to acknowledge the facts and embrace the millions of people suffering from mental illness everyday.
