In this episode, Clarissa Brandley shares her story of how as a young adult, she silently struggled with mental health issues that ultimately led to thoughts of suicide – all without her parents or friends ever knowing.
Ultimately she was able to confide in a missionary companion, who fortunately went against her wishes and helped to save her life.
