Welcome back to “Dear God, I’m Sad”! To kick off season two, I sit down with Daniel Whitehead who serves as the CEO of Sanctuary Mental Health Ministries, a non-profit that exists to equip the Church to support mental health and well-being. He is a Regent College graduate and ordained minister with over ten years of full-time vocational church ministry experience in the UK. In this conversation we talk about the work done at Sanctuary, Daniel’s experiences as both a pastor and a CEO, and our understanding of God’s relationship to our mental health.
Favorite Question of the Week: How has being the CEO of Sanctuary impacted how much you disclose your mental health challenges to others? Are you more inclined to share your challenges or to repress them to make space for those you serve?
