One in five adults experience mental illness. From 1999 to 2017, suicide rates in the US grew by 33%. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 35. In 2021, 32.8% of American adults experienced heightened (Galea, 2021). To engage in vast understatement, is a massive problem facing people from all backgrounds today. The month of May has been designated Awareness month, and in this video, I’m sitting down with lawyer, priest, and licensed psycho-therapist Ryan Casey Waller to discuss mental health. We’re talking about what it is, what the church can do, and how the gospel should impact the way we think about mental health.

If you are experiencing suicidal thoughts or ideation, please reach out to professionals for help. Here is a wonderful crisis line:

About Gospel Simplicity:
Gospel Simplicity began as a YouTube channel in a Moody Bible Institute dorm. It was born out of the central conviction that the gospel is really good news, and I wanted to share that with as many people as possible. The channel has grown and changed over time, but that central conviction has never changed. Today, we make content around biblical and theological topics, often interacting with people from across the Christian tradition with the hope of seeking greater unity and introducing people to the beautiful simplicity and transformative power of the gospel, the good news about Jesus.

About the host:
Hey! My name is Austin, and I’m a 23 year old guy who’s passionate about the beautiful simplicity and transformative power of the gospel. I believe that the gospel, the good news about Jesus, is really good news, and I’m out to explore, unpack, and share that good news with as many people as possible. I’m a full blown Bible and Church History nerd that loves getting to dialogue with others about this, learning as much as I can, and then teaching whatever I can. I grew up around Frederick, MD where I eventually ended up working my first job at a church. They made the mistake of letting me try my hand at teaching, and instantly I fell in love. That set me on a path for further education, and I’m currently a student at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, IL, studying theology. On any given day you can find me with my nose in a book or a guitar in my hands. Want to get to know me more? Follow me and say hi on Instagram at: @austin.suggs
