An Interview with Therapist Heather Nelson of Khesed Wellness

We hope you enjoy this special video/podcast edition of Fresh Hope for Mental Health. In this edition Pastor Brad Hoefs interviews Heather Nelson who is a therapist about an exciting new opportunity for churches around the country to offer the use of their space for the good of their community as a place for therapists to offer counseling at a reasonable rate. The nonprofit is called Khesed Wellness:

This is the opportunity for your church to help those who are struggling with mental health issues in your community.

(You might find it interesting that Heather is the grand-daughter of Pastor Chuck Swindoll from Insight for Living!)
