Today's special guest, Nancy Virden, is a suicide attempt survivor who is passionate about sharing hope with those in emotional pain. She is an author, Mental Health and Recovery Advocate, and Founder of Always the Fight Ministries.
Diagnosed with Major Depression Recurrent in 2005, and closely related to people with the same disease, Nancy has been on two intense sides of the spectrum as the patient and a key support. By directly relating with audiences, her goal is to encourage those who struggle with depression, and to help supports understand what to do or say without becoming overwhelmed.
Nancy offers a revealing look into major depression and recovery as only one who has been there can. Nationally and internationally, she shares her experiences and unique insights in-person, in publications, on FM/AM and internet radio, and as the host of the CompassionateLove Radio show. Her Compassionate Love Blog, which reaches readers in over 83 countries, publishes semi-weekly.
Her books titled, Called to Live: A Chronicle of Recovery After Attempted Suicide, and Always the Fight, inspire readers to connect to promise and hope.
