I met Johnna early in the spring this year. On the surface, she appeared scared and shy. I met with her parents and instantly could see the love they had for their daughter. Johnna is part of a close-knit family, the sixth of nine children. She was home schooled by her mother, and the entire family is active in their church. My heart felt heavy as Johnna's parents described how desperate they were to find help for her. They told me about Johnna's years of dark depression and their confusion about how this could be possible for such an intelligent and talented young person. They asked,"Do you think Hopewell can really help her?" My answer was, "Of course."
Entry in Erik's personal journal, July 26, 2013: "I woke up with vague memories of hurting myself last night. I didn't tell anyone. I have stayed in my room all day avoiding my parents. I don't want them to know. I can't tell anyone my bad thoughts. I have been very depressed for awhile now and have not been having real good thoughts about myself, not really liking myself very much I guess. I don't take any medications anymore. I have lost contact with all my friends. I used to work sometimes, not anymore. I'm not doing much at all. After those thoughts above, I guess I hurt myself again, this time pretty bad. My parents found me and called an ambulance."
