One in four of us will experience mental health problems. Shame, fear, anger and despair are our unwelcome fellow travellers, as Rob Merchant knows to his cost. We can resort to self-medicating through consuming, working, or other distractions, to hide who we are. Rob has tried them and discovered they don't deliver. Healing starts when we accept our vulnerability. True mental health - and true resilience - develop as we surrender wholly to Christ. Rob explores how we can move away from terror and self-loathing. As we acknowledge our vulnerability, and our place before God, we can discover forgiveness of others and of self, and find hope. It is never easy, but it works, because it's true.

Rob Merchant

The Revd Rob Merchant is Tutor and Director of St Mellitus College, Chelmsford. Upon leaving school Rob worked as a care worker supporting people with learning disabilities. Since ordination he has served in a number of different ministerial contexts and has worked in academic research. Rob's academic interests include ageing, mental health, and trauma. He has spoken at many Christian events including Spring Harvest, New Wine and Keswick. His passion is to see people flourish in the ministry to which they are called, in whatever walk of life. Rob is married to Tamsin and they have two sons.
