The difference between mental health and mental illness is something that Jamie focuses on, and in this episode we take a journey with Jamie to understand this difference. We hear about Jamie's journey and what it has looked for her to address her own mental illness, and how she has sought to be a central figure for helping persons understand more deeply about how to address mental illness, but also to care for their own mental health ( as a generalized way of caring for themselves.

Jamie brings her experience of teaching and practicing sports psychology at the collegiate level to help us understand how we can take mental health and mental illness seriously. She notes how it begins with education, and continues as we never try to fix others problems but help them to recognize they have support in the midst of their struggles.

Trigger Warning: We talk about suicide and mental illness in this episode, use self-care when listening.

About the Podcast

Active Faith Podcast
Building a theology of self-care together
In the Great Commandment, we hear Jesus call us to not only love God but to also love our neighbors as ourselves. This podcast is about the “as ourselves” part, as we learn what it means to care for ourselves in a holistic way that opens our spirits to more fully care for all of creation.

I began running when I was a kid. My mom says I went straight from crawling to running. However, I have been over a lot of hurdles to get to this point, and I would be nowhere without several communities to help me get here.
I am also a pastor in the United Methodist Church, and I have used my passion for creating loving and caring communities to help share God’s grace.
