Invite me to speak:
Is your organization, faith community, or conference interested in having deeper discussions about mental health, mental illness, and spirituality? I'd love to come and talk with you!

I'm happy to do any of the following:
  • give a sermon for a weekly worship gathering
  • lead a Bible study relevant to those struggling with mental health
  • speak about my upcoming book, Christ on the Psych Ward, and create a safe space for others to share their stories
  • facilitate a workshop on ministry with folks struggling with mental health crises
If you're interested in having me speak to your community, organization, or conference, just send me an email!
