101: Understanding Autism & Proactive Mental Health for Christian Leaders with Dr. Stephanie Holmes [Mental Health Series]

Play
Read more

There is often confusion between developmental disorders, such as autism spectrum disorder, and mental health disorders, such as depression or bipolar. As Christian leaders, it’s vital for us to understand the differences as well as consider how we love and lead those who may be dealing with one or more of these conditions.

In our final episode in our mental health series, Holly and I chat with our guest Dr. Stephanie Holmes about autism (a developmental disorder) and mental health for ministry leaders. We dive into the differences between developmental disabilities and mental health disorders and also discuss how both often have stigmas attached to them.

In addition, we dive into another area of expertise that Dr. Holmes has, which is around the issue of mental health for ministry leaders. We discuss the need for personal and organizational boundaries as well as the importance of developing lay leadership in churches.

Whether or not the issues of autism, marriage, or mental health directly impact you as a leader, this is an important conversation to expand your awareness of these topics. Dr. Holmes provides practical insights and recommendations for us as leaders as we interact with neurological differences as well as our own (and others’) mental health needs.

Key Quotes from the Episode:

Quotes are by Dr. Stephanie Holmes unless otherwise noted.

  • “I never saw myself as a leader; I just saw myself as, ‘There’s an opportunity to get that done.’”
  • “Autism is a bio-neurological developmental disability that generally appears before the age of 3; Autism impacts the normal development of the brain in the areas of social interaction, communication skills, and cognitive function.” - From National Autism Association
  • “We’re finding more people getting diagnosed later as adults, because sometimes some of those symptoms don’t become evident until their compensatory strategies are maxed out.”  
  • “While there should be no stigma for mental health anyway, there’s even sometimes a greater stigma for autism, because of the differences that person has.”
  • “God brought it to me, and I lived it 24/7, and then that became the ministry and leadership and opportunities He wanted me to pursue.”
  • “Spend time in the community and let people on the autism spectrum help educate you.”
  • “Autistic people are people first.”
  • “We’re all made in God’s image… Have a person point of view vs. a disordered diagnosis point of view.”
  • “How do I still serve this person in a way that they feel included in the church?”
  • “There’s a difference between character issues and diagnosis issues.”
  • “Serving God and your personal relationship with God are not the same thing.”
  • “I can’t give what I don’t have.”
  • “We need to approach our mental and spiritual health the way we should approach our physical health, which is to be more proactive and preventative and developing good habits.”
  • “It’s more Biblical when there are people in their giftings and people in lay leadership.” 
  • “We are physical, relational, spiritual, mental, emotional beings--we’re a whole person, so we need to take care of the health of all of these areas.”

Stephanie Holmes faced condescension when she floated the idea of deviating from just selling financial services. She wanted to help people change their spending habits, structure their debt, and have the life they want, and she had to start her own practice to do it. She later sold it when she started The Money Finder, of which she is currently the CEO. She chats with Clate and Scott about naysayers who tell her she’s a “stupid little girl,” seeing challenges as adventures, business inspiration, and how to grow a team and make sales happen without her direct involvement.
