Lived experience reflections relating to Cultural, Faith or Spiritual Practices and Communities

"…I believe - compared to many years ago - when I started on my healing journey, churches have become more aware of the need mentally ill people have. They now seem to have more resources and are able to refer people to those more qualified. Thirty years ago, there was not much available to support those on the front line, and there was more stigma for the mentally ill. Although so much is spoken about it now, I still carry the scars from trying to find my way without help and risking trust in people I should not have trusted."
