Mental Illness as a spiritual path

By Alice Holstein, Ed.D.

READ THE ARTICLE IN ITS ENTIRETY UNDER ARTICLES: PUBLISHED IN COMMUNITIES MAGAZINE

Dedicated to those not in attendance, such as those in our jails, underneath our bridges, at the Salvation Army, in psych wards and in one of our 4-5 households affected by mental illness.  The war we and they fight is often unheralded, unclaimed, full of sacrifice and pain.  We need to honor all of us and our families for the heroic deeds undertaken just to live.
