This story started with a father asking for prayer
for his son who struggled with schizophrenia.
Those prayers became a book and now a movie.
Let's help others share their story and support those who love and serve people who struggle with mental illness.
Let's start a viral movement of care, humanity and hope.
A VIRTUAL ARMY FOR A VIRAL MOVEMENT
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 SHARE 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 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 followers.
Help those with mental illness
TELL THEIR STORY
Share their gifts and their humanity
We want to add our voice and our help to
THOSE WHO SERVE
LET'S SHARE THE STORY
HELP US 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 care for those with mental illness
HELP US CREATE & SHARE RESOURCES
THAT WILL EQUIP LEADERS TO SUPPORT MEMBERS WHO STRUGGLE AND ENGAGE THEIR MEMBERS IN SERVICE
Let's bridge the gap between churches and organizations that serve the mentally ill, homeless, addicted and imprisoned.
If you or a loved one have lived experience with mental illness, share your story or gift.
If you don't, help spread the their voice.
If your organization serves those who suffer mental illness, we want to partner with you to foster greater awareness of the needs you meet.
If you are a leader of a church or social service organization with helpful resources that serve 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 who suffers from mental illness.
But we can offer greater care and dignity.
We can see our brothers and sisters who suffer as precious members of the human family who offer us the great gift of helping us become more human.
