According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, 1 in 5 people in Canada will experience a mental health problem or illness this year. And statistically, no one will get through the next year without being impacted, directly or indirectly, by mental illness. Over the past several years, mental health awareness has blossomed through corporate initiatives like Not Myself.

Today, increased engagement in Mental Health Week (May 7th – 13th in 2018), and social media campaigns like Instagram’s #HereForYou. Bell’s annual Let’s Talk Day on January 31st, 2018, raised $6,919,199. And as of 2016 there is a reliable and engaging, Canadian voice speaking out for a Christian approach to mental health awareness and management.

The Unspoken Conversation

Jordan Berta is a young Christian speaker and worship leader who has dealt with anxiety for the majority of his life. In 2016, he founded The Unspoken Conversation in an effort to address the lack of awareness, and presence of stigma, regarding mental health in the Christian community. While the secular world faces challenges and has its own suggested remedies for those dealing with mental health challenges, Berta believes, from personal experience, in the power of pairing professional medical tactics with “the peace that surpasses all understanding” to find true hope and restoration.

The Unspoken Conversation hosts guests ranging from medical professionals like Dr. Merry C. Lin, to Christian authors and leaders like Sherry Stahl, to musicians like Greg Sykes, on its weekly podcast. The interviews allow guests from a variety of backgrounds to share their perspectives on, and personal interactions with, mental health issues. Recent topics included “Learning How to Care and Be Cared For”, “Cybercondria”, and relevant, hot-off-the-press books by Christian authors.

Jordan is joined on the podcast by on-air contributors, who have each been impacted by mental health challenges including the psychological impact of Crohn’s disease, and the suicide of close friends. Berta has shared his story, and the mission of his ministry, with passion and authenticity, on a variety of platforms, with the hope that his story, his faith, and what he has learned along the way, will instill hope and courage in others who are struggling.
