After Warren Tragedy, Mental Illness in the News
After Matthew Warren's recent suicide, issues of ministry and mental health have been hot topics.
- At Her.meneutics, Gifted for Leadership editor Amy Simpson writes why "Christians Can't Ignore the Uncomfortable Reality of Mental Illness." As well, don't miss Amy's hard won wisdom and powerful pastoral take on ministry to the mentally ill in Leadership Journal: "Through a Glass, Darkly." (Be sure to preorder Amy's upcoming book on mental illness for more excellent and informed perspective on the topic.)
- The Washington Post collects a wide range of perspectives prompted by Warren's death. "Well-known evangelical figures called for an end to the shame and secrecy that still surrounds mental illness throughout U.S. society and a greater embrace of medical treatment, particularly among evangelicals."
