Rick Warren Tackles Mental Health after Son's Death

Ad Feedback

Pastor Rick Warren is taking on a new mental health ministry inspired by his personal tragedy.

Warren's youngest son, Matthew Warren, committed suicide last April after struggling with severe depression for years.

After Matthew's suicide, more than 10,000 people wrote to Warren and his wife, Kay, to share their own struggles with mental illness.

Now Pastor Warren is teaming up with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange, Calif., and the National Alliance on Mental Illness to host a day-long event next month.

Warren said the conference will address a range of mental health issues, from bipolar disorder to suicide, to more easily hidden issues such as anxiety, eating disorders, and addiction.
