How Faith, Music & ‘uncomfortable Conversations’ Helped Gospel Singer Mandisa Escape Depression

Written by on March 28, 2022

Mental health can be tough to talk about. No one likes to admit to struggling or feeling weakness, but it is a very real part of life.

In a recent interview with “Good Morning America” gospel singer Mandisa opened up about her new book, “Out of the Dark: My Journey Through the Shadows to Find God’s Joy,” and her personal struggle with depression. During the interview, she shared how faith, music, and uncomfortable conversations about mental health helped her escape the pit of depression.

This is not the first time Mandisa has spoken out about her mental health struggles. In 2017, she released a gospel album by the same name as the new book — “Out of the Dark.” At the time, she posted a video sharing her testimony about how the light of Jesus brought her out of the darkness.

“When I was in the deepest pit of despair and depression it’s all that I could see,” she said in the video. “I felt hopeless. I felt ashamed. I felt like there was no way I could get myself out of it.”

Watch the rest of Mandisa’s powerful testimony in the clip below and be sure to check out her book available anywhere books are sold.
