About the Book
It’s not often that a person with serious mental health problems gets the chance to make something big happen—like the Living Room faith-based support groups started by Marja Bergen in 2006. This was a time when churches were uninformed to a degree few today would believe. It was common for people with mental health symptoms to be blamed for their own emotional pain. They were made to feel ashamed. Living Room groups provided a spiritual home where it was safe to talk freely about mental health challenges.
