We both love how Matthew has taken the concept of sin and given a breath of fresh air to the topic. You must read this book because in its pages you will finally gain a biblical perspective on sin and what it takes to free yourself from the bonds that so easily entangle!

When mental illness afflicts a loved one, how can we understand what is happening and respond appropriately? This biblically-literate and scientifically-informed book offers helpful insight, encouragement, and practical advice. For pastors and for those who hurt for those who hurt, Matthew Stanford offers sensitive and welcome guidance.

Support Group / Bible Study Resources

I am often asked if there is material available for individuals interested in starting faith-based support groups or Bible studies for individuals struggling with mental illness and their families. Two resources that I highly recommend are Dr. Steve Waterhouse’s Depression Recovery According to the Bible and Steve and Robyn Bloem’s Christians Afflicted with Mental Illness. Both of these resources come from pastors who have experienced the pain and suffering associated with mental illness first hand.

  1. Government Funding / Research Scandal
    (**Updated March 15th** - Participants)

    Visit the website that the Canadian House of Commons and many Universities across North America have as well.

    It's an ingenious form of white collar crime:

    PHD credentials / contacts, an expendable family, participation of a dubious core of established professionals, Government agency funding (identity protected by Privacy Commissioner Office), unlimited funding (under the guise of research grants), PHD individuals linked with the patient (deter liability issues), patient diagnosed with mental illness (hospital committed events = no legal lawyer access/rights), cooperation of local University and police (resources and security); note the Director of Brock Campus Security.

    This all adds up to a personal ATM; at the expense of Canadian Taxpayers!
