Kate Spade: Shatter the Stigma & 5 Tips for Depression

June 7, 2018

"Neither the sun nor death can be looked at steadily."--Francoise de La Rochefoucauld. Successful New York Fashion Designer Kate Spade, 55, was found dead two days later in her New York apartment by her housekeeper, by an alleged suicide. Kate and her husband Andy created a mult-million dollar empire with their handbag company, Kate Spade. In 2016 she returned from a decade long hiatus to launch Frances Valentine, an accessories line named after her daughter and changed her name to Kate Valentine. Her husband Andy said she had struggled with depression and anxiety for five years, was under a doctor's care, and was on medication trying to heal, but "she battled personal demons." Her sister believed she had bipolar disorder. The news of Kate's tragic death has caused social media to blow up. In this podcast, I share about my own struggles with suicidality and attempts and panic attacks and the healing, delivering power of Jesus Christ. I share about the need to shatter the stigma of mental illness and mental disorders and to reach out to the hurting or to ask for help if you are depressed and suicidal. #shatterthestigma #mentalhealthawareness #katespade
