Why do Christians die by suicide?

Dr. Grant MullenMoods 4 Comments

Is it a lack of faith?

Have they forgotten the truth?
Depression and anxiety affect almost 20% of Christians.
So we need to talk about it.
I spent 25 years helping Christians through depression and yes, several died by suicide.
So I understand this issue.
Watch the video and I’ll help you understand what causes suicide and why Christians are so confused about mental health problems.

  1. Actually Dr. Grant you were a voice in the wilderness for me. As you mentioned my christian friends told me to fast, pray etc. There must be sin in your life !! I directed them to what you were saying and how you said it was a serotonin problem.
    Depression raised its ugly head for me in my 20s. There is a history of depression in my family on my fathers side. My Grandfather committed suicide at the age of 60.
    Fortunately for me I found a good psychiatrist who was able to get me stabilised. This along with lots of counselling and prayer has allowed me to be where I am today.
    Most people do not understand how debilitating this disease can be. Sad does not begin to describe it. When I experienced an episode, I was unable to work as my career requires much mental acuity and I was unable to comprehend written documents. People just don’t get the fact that your brain can get sick!!!

  2. Great to see you still dispelling so many mental health myths Grant. Your teaching and one other key was the turnaround for my life. There are times when I may feel a little depressed like anyone but I have learn’t to manage this family inherited disability with wisdom and understanding. Much of it founded on your great insights. Thank you Grant. Here stands one that didn’t commit suicide and loves life, God and his family and is able to let love flow through him. I guess I illustrate the reason you so bravely moved from being a GP to specialize in mental health, so thrilled you did.

  3. Dear Dr. Mullen
    Thank you so much for your book! I first saw you on 100 Huntley a few years ago and ordered your book then. Since then I have shared it with so many others. I didn’t feel I needed medication , but this past year I hit a crisis in my own life. I spoke to my doctor and she put me on Zoloft. I did write you at one point to ask if the dosage was correct and you advised me to increase it. This has helped me so much.
    This past weekend I attended the Discover Joy conference with my daughter-in-law, and we came home very encouraged. I just wanted to say thank you to you and Kathy for this very important ministry. It will be so helpful for others to know that your anxiety and depression can be controlled with medicine. I am so thankful!
    God bless!

  4. Thank you for explaining this. I have been on medication for many years and I still struggle to get through daily life. But I know from experience that if I am not on medication it is so much worse. I have struggled with depression for most of my life. I have tried many counsellors but nothing seems to ‘cure’ the problem. At least it makes me draw closer to God.
