Admitting I Needed Help (with Havilah Cunningham)

In Advice and Encouragement, Mental and Emotional Health, Podcast by Debra Fileta

Today I have an on air session with Havilah Cunnington.

Havilah and I talk through the crisis that happens when people of faith go through a significant mental illness!

Having come from a church background where mental illness was denied or simply seen as an attack from the enemy — the solutions that were given to her were to pray more and confess more.

But what happens when those solutions don’t work? What happens when you are plagued by depression and anxiety?

In this one-air counseling session we talk through the details of the darkest season she walked through in her life… And how she got out the other side.

We affirm the importance of Jesus plus therapy and medication as needed.

Listen to this powerful session with Havilah, and as you do, ask yourself where you might need to take next steps in your own healing journey.

Tune in now!
