This mother's journey with her son through mental illness and the mental health system is not unlike the stories of millions of families and friends throughout our country who live with mental illness. In the midst of the pain, anger, and frustration that come with this disorder, there is too often a loneliness that draws a dark shroud over the family. And that loneliness, that darkness, can result in isolation from family and friends, a loss of hope, and a questioning of God.
The author of His Drums Fell Silent, the Voices Still Speak wants you to know that you are not alone. She tells the story of her "all-American son," a passionate percussionist whose drums and dreams were silenced as he slid deeper and deeper into the darkness of mental illness. His story will touch your heart and speak to your pain. If you know a friend or family who may be struggling with mental illness, this account may give you the understanding and compassion you need to walk with them in a way which could bring some measure of comfort to them . . . to bring your love and God's love into their lives when they so desperately need it.
A second story tells how God used the pain of the author and her son to serve others who are facing the same challenges. Because of listening to God's voice, Ladder Homes was founded to provide housing and support for adults with mental illness. Hear the voices of some of the residents, parents and friends as they speak of their pain and new hopes and dreams that life has brought them.
