My Article on Depression, Religion and Stigma on the Huffington Post
I just realized that I didn't post on here about my Huffington Post article "I'm Depressed Because I Don't Have a Good Relationship with God?" In this post I discuss my past challenges with depression and how mental illness is stigmatized in many faiths. For me, I encountered this in Christianity. Please read and share.
Many people have reached out to me and thanked me for sharing my story. I appreciate the support. We can end stigma if more of us share our stories and recognize that mental health challenges are a normal part of life. As long as you have a brain in your head, you can encounter a mental health challenge. It could be depression, anxiety, stress, etc.
Take care of your mind. Take care of yourself.
