The Walking Wounded: Brett Ullman | The Church and Mental Health
After hearing of numerous suicides this week, multiple families in crisis, and people desperate for some help with mental health struggles I decided to post my Walking Wounded talk on Youtube. This is my entire professionally filmed talk on mental health.
This goes through my own journey with a breakdown including struggles with anxiety, panic attacks, and depression, as well as looking at how we can practically find what to do when we are not well
Life is good … until it’s not.
Dark clouds come in all shapes and sizes and leave us asking where do we turn? Some of us struggle with mental health: anxiety, depression etc. Some of our struggles come from coping with tough situations in life by Self Injuring: eating disorders, suicide, self-harm and drug, and alcohol use.
When we are surrounded by these heightened emotions and feelings life becomes one that is isolated from others and we begin to be full of questions instead of answers and we do not know what will work, or where to turn.
How do we begin our journey towards hope, healing, redemption, rescue, and a restoration to wholeness?
Where and when does our journey back to life begin again?
As a Follower of the Way (A Christian) What about our faith? How does our faith fit into our healing journey?
This talk has no cliches, no Christianese and does not put forward promises of false hope.
Brett Ullman in The Walking Wounded begins to address how to walk back towards healing and away from our emotions, feelings, and thoughts that are keeping us paralyzed in life.
No shame, no fear, or no hiding is required as we are safe to journey towards healing together.
There is Hope for the Walking Wounded.
