The mental health journey of a person of faith.
Not Ashamed of My Brain: the mental health journey of a person of faith...follows the life of Nate Stewart, the progression of mental illness in his life, and the impact that had on his faith in God. A faith in God that began early, seemed to leave abruptly, yet was rediscovered during the aftermath of a suicide attempt. In these pages, Nate shares some of the things the church has done well, and some of the things not done well, as a way to stimulate a conversation around mental health, the church, and what faith-based support really means.
Not ashamed of my brain is intentionally short and laid out in such a way as to elicit conversation using reflection questions at the end of each chapter. Questions can also be used independently as a way to both understand ourselves, and the people in our lives, more fully. Whether in a small group setting, or alone in a coffee shop, it is Nate's prayer that God will speak to you through these pages and do something extraordinary in your life.
