Fresh Hope for Mental Health Podcast with Host Brad Hoefs

Patient Leader

I'm a pastor who has bipolar disorder. I am the host of the Fresh Hope for Mental Health podcast. Due to my own experience in trying to find an encouraging support group, I founded Fresh Hope for Mental Health, an international network of faith based peer to peer mental health support groups. I've been leading a Fresh Hope course on mental health principles in the Douglas Country Jail in Omaha; developing materials for others to use. Fresh Hope offers a support group at a local homeless shelter. Other initiatives that are be developed by Fresh Hope are faith based mental health support groups for teens and groups for those with co-occurring diagnoses. I also blog for
