    Episode 9: Breaking Silences – Mental Illness

    If you live with mental illness, it can be too easy to believe you are all alone. We believe we must pretend that "everything's fine," because sharing our reality with others is just too terrifying. Jill Stemple helps us to break the silence around mental illness as she reads, "Learning to be known and loved: The movement from hiding mental illness to sharing it with the church," an article she wrote for The Mennonite magazine in July of 2016.
