emotional abuse, the root cause behind that is fear and fear is actually sent by demons, for want of. a better word.
Dont be afraid to say STOP IT when fear (demon) is attacking you. Name the fear.
if more counsellors new they could say 'stop it, in Jesus name!' then fear would actually stop in its tracks.

But people think instead of a simple command, that its easier or more profitable to give drugs.

Getting people stable - ok when you are in the throws of a psychotic spell etc its not pretty. Its actually scary for not just the person afflicted but anyone else observing. what you need to do is get that person to a safe space, and calm.

physically, a HUG is actually what you need to do to stop someone running away.
and a mug of tea...also. A lot of people dont know the healing effects of a simple cup of tea. After all the Bible says leaves are for our healing. What is tea made from...leaves and hot water.

a person equipped to deal with mental illness is what Jesus said this kind can only go out through prayer AND Fasting.
A hug and a mug...2 u!

I have suffered with mental illness for over 35 yrs...
I was diagnosed with Psychosis , I had a terrible season of that for a while , but since I got saved 4 yrs ago , I have only had one episode , and I understand fully what you mean when the mind wavers...

In my early babe years in Christ , I could go from one minute to thinking I was saved , then the next I was on my way to hell , it took the LORD time and His grace to show me who I am in Him , and through all my OCD thoughts that I could not not control , He brought me to this Scripture that finally broke them chains , and hear it is ,

Philippians 4:7
And the peace of God, surpassing all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
...xox...
amen!

35 years a long time. I had for ...15 years but when I got saved...no more episodes. My healing was inner and I really had to reach out and touch the hem of His garment for that one.

I didnt have OCD thoughts like some experience but God did teach me that once I knew the truth, I was free.

Scripture is very important and there a few that really helped my walk that I will share. Memorise these scriptures as they are like 'combat scriptures' for negative thoughts (i.e lies) Satan will place in the mind.

Psalm 91 is really good for right now.
Praying you all keep under the shelter of His wings.

Your testimony is compelling and I am so happy for you. It is a praise report for sure, but are you saying all those who suffer mental illness are plagued with demons?
