Mental health issue

“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 of my 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
Hope and help for suicidal thoughts
Hope for those affected by Alzheimer’s disease
“It’s the Most Difficult Time of the Year” Surviving the stress of Christmas
Jesus, ADD and me
Mood altering hugs
I’m a mess. You’re a mess. (Audio)
You may depressed if . . .

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!

  • She was very brave to share her struggles with mental illness, Jim, so others could find the help they need. I’m sorry there is still a stigma attached to this very common illness, which affects one in five people. Shame on us for the labels we put on others, and may God help us to love as Jesus loves and lift our fellow-strugglers UP!
