GRACE GROUP Leader

Hi, my name is Helen Guenther.  I have been on my own mental health journey for nearly 30 years having been diagnosed with depression and anxiety in my twenties.

Although there were times of struggle during life’s most stressful trials or when my medication wasn’t right, for the most part I can say I never felt it was much of a burden, rather something I just dealt with like any other medical condition.  With treatment and God by my side, I have been able to live a fulfilling and joyful life.

This has included working as a resource/special education teacher with children with special needs including mental health issues and prepared me to support my daughter who also walked a mental health journey, battling an eating disorder in her early teens.

That time compelled me to write a book called, “Pressing On: The Blessed Journey Alongside a Daughter with an Eating Disorder” and offer to lead a mental health support group at Eastview Community Church where I have attended for almost 20 years.

If you are walking a mental health journey yourself or supporting a family member who is, please consider coming to the Grace Group.
