But the Lord God helps me; therefore, I have not been disgraced; therefore I have set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be put to shame.
The biggest barriers to mental health treatment are shame, stigma, and lack of financial resources.
No Shame Ministries is committed to helping Christians experience freedom through a transformation in Jesus Christ from the shame associated with depression, anxiety, addictions, mental illness, and suicidal thoughts by centering on a sound mind, body, spirit, and healthy relationships.

Peer-to-Peer Attendee Testimonial
It's well over 25 years since I've dealt with depression and anxiety, yet in the last few years, I've found the support needed to improve my mental wellness journey. Medication has been helpful, yet I still didn't have a quality life.
I've always believed, yet I never really leaned into God's word for comfort until I immersed myself in Bible studies, and my life quality has changed. One of which was a No Shame Peer-led group. That's when I realized that I was ashamed of my diagnosis. No one needed to know about my struggles, and when I did talk about it, I'd get a response of "get over it" you're fine.
Do I still struggle? Yes, ultimately, I know I CAN feel comfortable telling people I struggle with my mental state because I'm surrounded by my No Shame family and other believers who have been in my shoes. I'm thankful I have a Father to walk with through this journey.
