This is a fictional story, but based on some real events, that I wrote a while ago before I got the ability to “Press This” and post to my Facebook, Google+, and so forth.

It imagines a future world where someone suffering from mental illness gets as much support – and availability – to pastoral counseling as a diabetic in an emrgency room.

I am interested in comments from mental health consumers, family members, and mental health professionals…could this fictional story actually become a reality, and if so, what would be the first toddling steps forward?

Please, forward to anyone you know who is interested in mental health care!
