Are you selfish? Are you sinning? Are you sick?
I don't know if you are acquainted with anyone who has schizophrenia
(or for that matter any other type of mental illness).
I don't know if you avoid talking about mental illness.
I don't know if you or a family member has a mental illness.
I don't know if you feel embarrassment or uneasiness at the mere mention of mental illness.
I don't know if you fear someone may uncover the truth about you or a loved one.
Well, what is the big secret about this anyway? I mean, is mental illness a sin?
Is it a moral flaw? Is it the same as demon possession?
Is it something about which we should be ashamed?
Is God mad at you because you suffer from it?
Let me answer that question for you:
We are deeply burdened for people with mental illness. We advocate for people who are afflicted with these diseases through seminars, education and counseling. Another way we have defended the sick is bhttp://www.heartfeltmin.org/how-can-i-get-involved.htmly being honest about our own family struggles. We chronicle our journey in our book, called Broken Minds.
