The FIRST faith-based Mental Health Magazine in Middle Tennessee. Whether it is depression, anxiety, an eating disorder, addiction, or any other inner battle, we at Rutherford County’s Life Line Magazine believe no one deserves to suffer in silence. Our mission is to give a voice to mental health issues within the Christian community in an effort to increase awareness and offer support to those in need. Founder Dolores Hambrick answered the divine call to launch Life Line in the aftermath of a murder/suicide that claimed the lives of a couple within her home church.
For too long, mental health struggles in the Church have been labeled as taboo or evidence of a lack of faith. The result of this misunderstanding is countless hurting people being left to search for a solution in isolation rather than being embraced in love by their brothers and sisters in Christ. Our aim is to shift the way mental illness is perceived among believers so that no one has to fight alone. Rutherford County’s Life Line Magazine seeks to spark conversations that lead to greater understanding, forge pathways to healing, and connect people to vital resources within the community through our quarterly publications.
Currently, we print 3,000 copies of each issue and distribute them to counseling offices, treatment facilities, local businesses, and more than 300 homes in Rutherford County. If you would like to partner with us in this endeavor by having Rutherford County’s Life Line Magazine available at your location, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
