To empower individuals with a mental health challenge, along with their loved ones, to live a full and rich faith-filled life in spite of a mental health challenge.

Fresh Hope is an international network of Christian support groups for those who have a mental health diagnosis and for their loved ones.

At the core of Fresh Hope is the belief that it is possible to live well in spite of having a mental health challenge because of the hope found in Christ; that no matter how one feels, it is possible to still have hope because of Christ.

A Fresh Hope group is a peer-to-peer-led, safe, encouraging, and healing environment where real hope and real healing take place and the sure hope of Christ is foundational.

Dr. Michael J. Brisset
GracePoint Counseling Services

“I had the opportunity to go through excellent training programs at Emory University, Purdue University, and the University of Alabama in Birmingham School of Medicine. My training in Clinical Psychology included instruction in a number of therapeutic approaches for working with children, adolescents, and adults, and I had additional training in Developmental Psychology to provide greater understanding of the whole human life cycle. In my practice I utilize a number of approaches but most often use cognitive, cognitive-behavioral, and relational therapies. As a Christian, I integrate Christian values and truth into my practice. While I am pleased to share about my faith, I respect the fact that not every individual who comes into my office will have the same faith, and I do not impose my beliefs on my clients. However, like every other therapist, my beliefs and values certainly affect who I am as a counselor.”
