FIELD DRESSING FOR A SPIRITUAL WOUND
Things you can do now for yourself or a loved one
Ask for help! Nothing wrong with that. Many of us grew up in a culture where you were discouraged for ‘reporting sick’ especially for something like a mental illness. At Wounded Spirit we are working to remove this stigma.
