Straight talk about faith and mental health
Tony and Eric are passionate advocates for breaking stigma about mental health diagnoses and allowing faith to be an integrated part of their wellness journey. These guys have been through a lot and are opening the door for conversation with a wide variety of guests. I’m looking forward to more excellent episodes in the future!
Real and honest
This is not theory. It's not abstract. It's people who live with both faith and mental illness. More to the point, they live with a life including faith and mental illness. This is real information, and a real blessing.
Striking a Necessary Chord
Revealing Voices is unique among podcasts and resources related to faith and mental health. Unlike medical journals or faith based counseling resources, Tony and Eric are committed to breaking stigma through story. This emphasis helps us to see ourselves in those they interview. Pulling from a wide variety of experiences, Revealing Voices approaches this topic with the complex chord structure we need to hear. These dissonances and resolutions are often felt on the podcast and trains our ear in what healing may be this side of glory.
Whether you have a mental illness, love someone who does, or are seeing the complexity of this topic for the first time Revealing Voices is for you.
