Mental illness is a real problem that affects a significant number of people.

But we don’t even want to think about it, let alone deal with it!

Worse, it’s one of the only illnesses that we “define” a person by. We never say “He’s a broken arm” or “He’s a heart-attack” but we do say “He’s bipolar.”

What does this do to our Christian brothers and sisters who are so reduced?

In this episode I am joined by Deacon Ed Shoener. We discuss the problem of mental illness, what we can do as Christians, and some of the details of the institute that deacon helped build. This is life changing information!
