One in every four people in your church will be affected by mental illness each year. 'Freed From Shame' sheds light on the reality of mental illness in the Church, not to condemn people, leaders or churches, but instead to offer insight, education and practical advice on how to tackle this challenging subject. The book looks at what mental health issues are and how they affect those who live with them, with real life stories and suggestions on how the church can create a supportive environment. "I have people in my church struggling with mental health. You do too. This book is an invaluable tool in learning how to understand, how to help and how to love." [Mark Landreth-Smith - Pastor, Bridge Church - Newbury, UK]
