We love Mandisa and how infectiously happy she is–in both her songs and in person. But what a lot of people don’t know is that her song “Overcomer” began a downward spiral into a deep depression that even led to thoughts of taking her own life.

If you can relate to this story, PLEASE know – you are loved, you are valuable, and you are worth helping! Take time to reach out to someone today and talk about what’s going on. Finding a counselor and some trusted friends to walk through this with you will make all the difference!
