It's Ok To Not Be Ok

More of us than ever are struggling with mental health challenges – suicide and self-harm, worry and anxiety, stress and burnout, and depression. Everybody is either struggling with some of this stuff or knows someone who is. It’s time to be honest about our mental health.

It’s Okay to Not be Okay | Part 1 | Weeds in My Garden (Mental Health)



Jesus cares and gets us. We believe turning to him will open the door to getting help and hope.

In early 2023, Mountain is going deeper in sharing about different mental health challenges each week during a new message series called Weeds In My Garden. During this series we’ll identify ways we can find help and hope in each situation through Jesus. 

Bookmark this page now and be sure to check back weekly throughout the series as Mountain releases practical tools, new resources and shares positive affirmations and prayers to walk alongside you and the ones you love in your mental health journey.

You are not alone.

There is HELP and there is HOPE.

When it comes to mental health, being honest with what we are battling with is important.

I will be honest with myself and with Jesus about what challenges threaten me and will move toward Jesus in my struggle.

Supporting Scripture

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
Philippians 4:6-8 | NIV

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
1 Peter 5:7 | NIV

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:28 | NIV

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
Joshua 1:9 | NIV

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. (see verses 25-34 for more)
Matthew 6:34 | NIV
