I AM An Advocate
For Mental & Spiritual HEALTH
Stacey McDonald is a practicing school psychologist, evangelist, author, public speaker, and
former lead pastor of ten years. She has trained ministers for leadership, equipping them for
ministerial success in and out of the pulpit and provided biblical counseling to families, couples,
and youth resulting in healthy minds and healthy homes. She provides mental health workshops
and seminars for businesses, schools and places of worship and hosts weekly live streamed
mental health empowerment sessions.
Having a father with schizophrenia, as well as her own personal battle with depression, mental
health awareness is more than her lived experience—it is her call and passion. Stacey has been
touched by the resiliency of humankind. The infinite potential born from pain is nothing short of
miraculous, and to be a midwife to such encouraged her writing of The Gospel of Mental Health
to serve as an inspiring guide and workbook for anyone else who is seeking mental health from
among the embers of mental hell.
