First, a huge thank you to New Hope Community Church, the hosts of our most recent event on May 30. We had a great day, hearing moving and powerful stories about depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and eating disorders, among other challenging experiences of mental health.
Those who attended were deeply impacted:
“I think seeing how mental illness impacts every person in the family in so many different ways was one of the most helpful parts of the conference.”
“I was so very encouraged and was inspired… “
“I relearned how not alone people are who struggle in areas of mental health.”
“I loved all the speakers! I was able to get insight about a variety of common struggles as well as some I am not so familiar with, like schizoaffective disorder.”
So now what? Where will Shattering Stigma go next? We are planning for the next year now, and seeking communities of faith that would be interested in hosting this conference. Interested? Contact me, Shattering Stigma founder Tara Rolstad.
