DR. GRANT MULLEN
He is an author, international speaker and Doctor.
Dr. Mullen graduated from the University of Toronto Medical School. As a GP, he engaged with his patients and found that many were suffering from emotional pain rather than the physical pain that he was trained to treat.
When he began to treat depression, anxiety and mood swings in his patients, he found that people think in predictable patterns. He also found that Christians suffer from depression in unique ways and are often reluctant to accept medical treatments. He has written books and courses on his findings.

Never in our lifetime have we witnessed or lived through a global pandemic. For so many this experience has been difficult and challenging. Depression, anxiety, fear, uncertainty, suicide, are at a all time high.

Once this pandemic is over, will we go back to normal? What is normal?
Will there be a fallout regarding mental wellness?
Will church look different?
