What do you do when you recognize yourself or someone you love is described as “OCD,” “bipolar disorder,” “PTSD,” or “narcissistic”? A psychiatric diagnosis can be a heavy burden—for you or someone you love. The DSM can provide a detailed description, but what comes next? These struggles have the potential to dominate your life, but remember this: God is not silent when His people face these challenges. So, what does God say?
“I Have a Psychiatric Diagnosis” guides readers in listening to God, who shows compassion for those grappling with these painful experiences. By listening to God through the Bible, we can reshape psychological descriptions and gain a corrective lens that opens our eyes.
