Kay Warren is a force of nature and a tragic family circumstance has forged her to be both a powerful pastoral presence and also highly empathic. I was struck by just how much of her own humanity Kay brings to everything. It was an honor to visit with her.

Kay discusses acute anxiety, mental health in the church, medication, suicide. She also addresses my questions on what triggers her own anxiety, how she knows when she is anxious and what activities and places make her feel fully alive.

Kay’s blog is essential reading.Particularly, this article: Sitting On The Edge of Hell.

Kay also referenced a great national resource for mental health: NAMI.
