About Always The Fight Ministries
In January 2011, at a white desk in a tight room on the behavioral health (psychiatric) ward of a hospital outside Philadelphia, Always the Fight Ministries was born. No one knew of it then, not even the woman writing furiously in a journal offered to her by a psychiatrist.
Words on those pages were not to be seen by anyone else, let alone become a published book. Yet over the course of a year, Called to Live: A Chronicle of Recovery After Attempted Suicide, became the opening statement for a longer term advocacy work.
Since then, public sharing of her story has included: 3 books; dozens of podcast and broadcast radio interviews; contributions to online and traditionally published magazines; AlwaysTheFight.com and the CompassionateLove Blog; and multiple appearances in churches, schools, and other venues.
Always the Fight Ministries found its official name in February 2016. The focus is two-fold.
(1) To offer hope to people who struggle with Depression, addiction, abuse, and/or suicidal thinking
(2)To encourage people in supportive roles, sharing insights into what to do and say or not do and say when loved ones struggle with Depression
