Ep. 79 : Are You Really Okay? with Debra Fileta, LPC

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and the Mattsons invited Debra Fileta to talk about her new book, Are you Really Okay? Getting Real About Who You Are, How You’re Doing, and Why It Matters.

We specialize in leaders because we know leaders are human too!

Historically, the church has not had the greatest reputation at responding well to mental illness or understanding the needs, oversimplifying and sometimes over spiritualizing and causing more harm.
