The plane has landed. After sitting for hours on the runway at Dulles, waiting for a storm to pass, we finally took to the air. I landed in Indy about an hour ago and made it home in time to post the following round-up of mental health posts for the week I found worthy of your attention.
“Looking back: Youth pastor’s death puts a light on depression.” (So… there I was) shares the tragic story of Michael Sanders – “a genuinely quiet, passionate person with a deep reflective faith” who succumbed to suicide.
“Losing Hope” (Vibrantly Bipolar) offers an encouraging Word and faith-filled prayer for those struggling through the chaos of mental illness.
“Walking a fine line between being a helpful or overbearing spouse” (Loving Someone With Mental Illness) provides a first-hand reflection from someone eager to help a loved one with a mental illness, yet finding it a very delicate task.
“I’m Not Using Food to Cope Anymore, Now What?” (Fearless Nutrition) suggests some strategies to re-direct your mind and body when you are tempted to respond in unhealthy ways.
Check these out and tell me what you think…
