Our founder, Dr. Kimberly Boone, who has suffered from anxiety, depression, and even a period of intense suicidal ideation, knows firsthand how mental and emotional oppression hinders God’s people from fully embracing and living out their God-given identity and kingdom purpose. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, one in five U.S. adults experiences mental illness. Nineteen percent of U.S. adults experience anxiety disorders and approximately twelve plus million have serious thoughts of suicide. However, according to these same surveys, only 45% of adults with a mental illness will get treatment. Additionally, according to the Anxiety & Depression Association of America, 264 million people struggle with depression and 40 million people struggle with anxiety. The reality is that believers are not exempt to any of these numbers. Within the community of faith, the topic of mental health has been considered taboo for generations. Mental illness has been wrongly assessed as an identifier of a lack of faith or poor moral character. Nevertheless, many believers struggle with addictions, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and even more that require medical treatment or professional counseling.As believers and followers of Christ, it is incumbent upon us to recognize the importance of navigating the spiritual as well as the professional support, as the need for mental health is steadily increasing. We are multi-dimensional beings with a mind/soul, body, and spirit who can experience freedom in each of these areas. Our Heavenly Father is capable and willing to heal us in each of these areas, but only He gets to choose how He would like to usher in His healing. His power and His loving-kindness does not stop at therapists or psychiatric medications, but it very well could begin there. While we recognize the dark oppression of mental and emotional issues that many people in the body of Christ are suffering from, we also acknowledge the light of Jesus Christ that provides hope and healing even through various mental health modalities including, but not limited to: Christian counseling, Christian coaching, secular coaching, individual therapy, psychiatry, social work, group therapy, and family therapy.
