A three-week series geared towards encouraging those with mental illness. Each week, the teaching guides take different lies a person with mental illness might believe about themselves or their illness and combats them with the truth.

Week 1 - Depression Isn't a Sin
Week 2 - You're Not Alone, God is with You
Week 3 - Misconceptions and Lies

Doug's notes: Those who went to his workshop at the Student Leadership Conference loved it. He made a very useful resource for us.

We gave out a book to anyone that wanted one on the last week. You can find the book on the Amazon shopping list. We also gave out "I am Loved" buttons to everyone on the last week as a reminder for themselves. We also encouraged them to take extras for people they knew were struggling and could use the encouragement.

Note from the Author

There was a fourth week in the series unsubmitted. A student leader who has anxiety and depression shared her story of how God has worked in her life, even through her mental illness. Hearing from someone who also struggles but is bold enough to talk about their experience without fear or shame is powerful.

This three-week series is an encouragement for those suffering with mental illness and a challenge for Christians who do not. For too long, the church has driven Christians with mental illness into hiding, making them feel like they were sinning. This series can help you break that stigma.

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
