The story started with a father asking for prayer
for a son struggling with schizophrenia.
Those prayers became a book and now a movie.
Let's start a viral movement of prayer, affirmation and hope for those who struggle with serious mental illness.
According to the World Health Organization, 1 in 5 people suffer from some degree of mental illness.
When family and friends are added to that number, the potential participants in this movement are enormous.
HELP US AFFIRM THEIR HUMANITY
Let Me Have My Son tells the story of a father, whose search for his son opens his eyes to a world he hadn't expected. He discovers the precious humanity of those who struggle with serious mental illness and finds hope in the face of despair.
Help others discover that same precious humanity and hope.
We want to partner with groups who promote greater care and dignity for the mentally ill.
And build a network of allies who spread the message of the film through their social media following.

LET'S CREATE AND SHARE BEAUTIFUL MESSAGING THAT ELEVATES THE HUMANITY OF THOSE WE SERVE
There are 90% fewer beds for the mentally ill now than in 1963. Many now end up homeless, dead or in prison.
Help us support those who are working to make things better.
SUPPORT & MOBILIZE
Churches and Community Groups to serve those with mental illness
HELP US CREATE & SHARE RESOURCES
Let's bridge the gap between churches and organizations that serve the mentally ill, homeless, addicted and imprisoned. Want to help research and create resources for churches and civic groups?
If you or a loved one has lived experience with mental illness, share your story or gift.
If mental illness has not been your experience, volunteer to help spread the voices of others.
If your organization serves those who suffer with mental illness, we want to partner with you to foster greater awareness of your mission.
If you are a leader of a church or social service organization with helpful resources serving those with mental illness and their loved ones, we'd love to help spread the word.
We want to partner with concerned journalists, influencers and experts who champion mental illness issues.

TURN A MOVIE INTO A MOVEMENT
LET'S GET REAL
We can't fix everything...
Ask anyone who's had a friend or family member suffering from mental illness...
But we can offer greater care and dignity.
Every human being is worthy of love.
