About Julie Thomas PhD
Julie Thomas, mother, wife, author of Hope Inside Out, speaker. She has a passion to render a voice to those who struggle with depression. This passion is the byproduct of her own isolated battle with postpartum depression after the birth of her second son, and continued clinical depression for the subsequent years.
In light of her own battle with depression, behind the veil of shame and fear, she is now passionate about stripping that veil and bringing awareness in the church and beyond, about the challenges posed by mental illness.
Julie was recently featured on Iamsecond.com featuring her testimony on her struggle with depression.
