Uneasy Priest – Change Your Mind

From Uneasy Priest – Change Your Mind:

For those of you on Facebook: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUaXFlANojQ

If you don’t know the truth about mental illness, change your mind and learn about it today.

My name is Dave Juhl. I was diagnosed with clinical depression in the summer of 2008. It was a life changing diagnosis…for the positive.

For those of you who do not know, I blog about my struggles with mental illness here. It’s the first time ever I have admitted that I am the author of this blog. This campaign about not being afraid of speaking and admitting about mental illness changed my mind about my anonymity….

This is from my dear friend and fellow brother-in-office, Pastor David Juhl. If you don’t follow his blog(s), I would encourage you to do so. I always learn from him, and pray that he continues to receive the healing that he needs.

  1. I too share in your struggles to break down the stigmas associated with mental health and other areas. I am diagnosed with chronic major depression, chronic post traumatic stress disorder, borderline personality disorder, dissociative disorder NOS and an eating disorder. Therapy and medications has helped tremendously and recently blogging has been another source of an outlet. I really emphasize with you. My pastor was also diagnosed with depression and spoke openly about it during his sermons.

    In my blog, I hope to provide encouragement, understanding and hope and to breakdown the stigmas by educating. These are two of my posts that directly address stigma related to mental illness.
