I will be speaking on:
Supporting and Ministering to Those with Mental Health Issues
How to Make Your Church a Safe Space for Those Struggling with Mental Health
As someone who has spoken on mental health for over 2 decades I often hear from people that the church has hurt them more than it has helped them. If the church is going to be the hope of the world we need to address why people might be feeling this way. There are small easy changes we can make in our churches that can take away unnecessary barriers for the people struggling in our congregations.
Brett Ullman travels North America speaking to teens, young adults, leaders, and parents on topics including parenting, mental health, men, sexuality, pornography, dating, and media. Brett’s seminars engage and challenge attendees to try and connect our ancient faith with our modern culture we live in. Participants are inspired to reflect on what we know, what we believe and how our faith ought to serve as the lens through which we view and engage tough conversations in our society today. Husband to Dawn, and father of Bennett and Zoe, Brett and his family make their home in Ajax, Ontario where Brett leads and directs Worlds Apart, a charity focused on empowering individuals to re-align their lives with Biblical core values often muddled by media but central to Christian living.
Brett was a teacher with the Toronto District School Board for 10 years before moving into speaking full-time back in 2005. Brett has a Masters degree in Evangelism and Leadership from Wheaton Graduate School in Chicago and is also a graduate of the Arrow Leadership Program. Brett is currently working on his Masters in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University.
He and his family attend Sanctus Church (formerly C4 Church) in Ajax since 2004.
