In this one-of-a-kind study, Dr. Nedley will reveal why only humans commit suicide in the mammalian world and how studying the seven suicides in the Bible can help us find lasting solutions to mental illness and avoid this ultimate psychiatric catastrophe. You will also learn from many in the Bible who wanted to die but chose not to take their lives. Comparing the two groups can help us greatly in solving the worldwide epidemic of mental illness.

Fall convocation topics include:
The Mental Illness We All Have—and How to Solve It
The world’s most quoted researcher on psychology calls this the whole world’s number 1 problem. The political world and the news media like to talk about problems that fit their narrative, but they all completely ignore a problem far more serious and consequential than any they talk about. Find out what it is and how solving it will lead you to experience the psychological good life—what every person is searching for.
Enhancing Your Emotional Intelligence
Your success, happiness and transformative influence is dependent on your ability to know and understand your own emotions and others’ emotions. Learn what the Bible says about this important subject and hear from case reports that illustrate how emotional intelligence can be greatly improved.
The Role of Nutrition in Healing Your Brain Biochemistry
Learn the latest scientific findings on nutrition and mental health and how utilizing this information can greatly affect our ability to think rationally and in ways that can help us more easily achieve our goals. The brain is a manufacturing plant that must have the right nutrients at the right times to produce neurotransmitters and membrane receptors crucial for lifting our mood, managing our emotions, and helping us solve serious real-life problems with as little drama as possible. You will understand why nutrition and nutrient supplementation is now mainstream medicine.
Sex and Mental Health
About half of all mental health challenges eventually come about as a result of unhealthy sexual behavior. Science has revealed truly astounding findings related to unhealthy sex causing a host of mental health problems. Find out what unhealthy sex is and how the brain can reboot and heal itself in those who have been practicing it. Learn what healthy sexual behavior is and how it can improve intimate relationships, and how phenylethylamine (PEA) can last a lifetime for those who understand and practice an ideal intimate lifestyle.
