Wade grew up in a broken home. He became very sad, anxious and depressed which continued though most of his life. After finally being diagnosed with depression, anxiety (and since then ADHD and OCD), and put on a treatment program, he experienced 5 mental breakdowns over a 20-year period. His worst breakdown was in 2010 when he hit rock bottom and had serious thoughts of suicide. His wife encouraged him to go to the hospital. He went and was put under psychiatric care and placed in an intensive 3-month psychiatric program. He learned techniques to deal with his mental illness; to control his extreme worry and negative thinking. Wade acknowledges that God truly saved his life and is now guiding him to help others by sharing God’s love and providing hope for those suffering from mental illness.
