Hope and Mental Health

Observing May as 'Mental Health Month,' Jim shares from his own experience on the subject…

May is “Mental Health” month, so “Hi, I’m Jim. I struggle with mental health issues.”

Yep, I have clinical depression, ADD, OCD and, just to keep things interesting, I’m on the very mild end of the autism spectrum. So, here are some hopeful posts on mental health that I trust will be helpful and hopeful:

Are authors in their “write” mind
Charles Spurgeon’s struggle with depression
Dealing with death and grief
Emotions real but not reality
“Hi, I’m Jim. I have clinical depression.”
>Hope and help for suicidal thoughts
Hope for those affected by Alzheimer’s disease
I’m a mess. You’re a mess. ( Audio)

From my daughter, Faith, the licensed therapist:
From fairy tale to horror story Excerpt from Recovering Love
Mental health resources
Ten signs of addictionp>

I am so grateful that God has chosen someone with mental health issues to share hope and humor. God’s grace is amazing . . . and ironic!

If you found this post helpful, please share it on your social networks. Thanks!
