Mental health issues are something that many people struggle with on a daily basis – from small children to the elderly.  In fact, recent statistics from The World Health Organization named depression the second most common cause of disability worldwide after cardiovascular disease, and it is expected to become number one in the next ten years.  Studies of religious groups reveal no evidence that the frequency of depression or anxiety varies across groups.

Mental health issues are very real and need to be responded to with care and understanding, not judgment or condemnation.  My passion is to increase awareness about mental illness, de-mystify it for everyone, and begin a campaign to teach all of us how to treat those suffering from mental illness with compassion and acceptance.  And if you are the one who is suffering from mental illness, my heart goes out to you.  Please… no more shame.  No more isolation.  Please hold onto hope and reach out for help.
