I translate mental health concepts to provide clarity and a path towards healing for kingdom advocates
In middle school, young Mark hit a point of tragic despair after being bullied, misunderstood, and neglected. He decided one night that the pain was too great to bear, and swallowed an entire bottle of pills.
Thankfully, his suicide attempt failed when his parents rushed him to the hospital later that night. This experience prepared him to empathize with and fight for those living in despair.
After high school, Dr. Mayfield set out to help people in any way he could, which ultimately led him down the path of becoming a counselor.
Immediately after becoming a counselor, Dr. Mayfield hungered to help more people. He has since created a non-profit counseling center that serves over 15,000 appointments per year, authored books, conducted trainings, and spoken in large gatherings.
Through all of these mediums and more, Dr. Mayfield continues to focus his attention on guiding people toward feeling needed, valued, and loved. He trains people on how to Stop • Listen • Respond instead of React. He teaches people how to embrace the messy healing process in themselves and those around them.
