The Damascus Road Experience, Inc. Movement

WE ARE ALL FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE

However, the world has us believing that folks impacted by mental illness are made less than others, and have no future or a hope. D.R.E.implores you and the world to believe something different in 2019.   

THE BIG TASK

CALLED TO DO WHAT?

Lord, am I hearing you right?  Do WHAT?

Although we are not therapists, we exist to point those struggling with an illness of the mind to a future and toward the hope.

From receiving an MBA to accepting a teaching position in China to God sending him home...different than before.

THE ENCOUNTER

TO A FUTURE, TOWARD THE HOPE

Through a series of D.R.E. Talks, mental wellness panel discussions, and our charity arm, we provide insight, support, and advocacy on behalf of those who have an illness of the mind.

During lively conversations, we explore mental illness to include how it affects people of color, the church and its view of mental illness, social stigma, law enforcement and the mentally ill, involuntary versus voluntary hospital commitments, and the effect of pharmaceuticals on a person's day-to-day living.

For those who are struggling with the impact of mental illness, the false narrative of being less, suicide, suicide ideation, anxiety, depression, or with the stigma surrounding the public face of mental illness, we can help.

Our D.R.E. Talk speakers walk the mental health road in their professional or personal lives. Each is trained to provide a future and a hope to families, loved ones, church congregations, veterans, universities, organizations, fraternities, sororities, schools, and communities. 

While our speakers' bureau engages you in real talk, a real conversation, our charity arm helps those diagnosed with an illness of the mind to stay stable in their day-to-day environments.

Invite D.R.E. to speak today.

D.R.E. TALK

SHE FEARED SHE WOULD BE LIKE HER MOTHER

The bouts of anger, the rage, the tears all became a mainstay of Cyn's life as a little girl watching her mother navigate her mental illness, comforted in the false narrative that her mother's illness would never be hers.

D.R.E. TALK

NEVER, EVER, SAY NEVER

I have learned to never say never. Never to say not me, not mine, not ours.

ASK ME TRAC TEES

Jesus calls us to be fishers of all people. But sometimes we just don't know what to say. Don't fret, Trac Tees are designed to say it for you. With a slogan and corresponding scripture grabbing the world's attention and pointing toward salvation on the front, and a request for others to engage you in conversation on the back, Trac Tees can't help but create an authentic discussion about Christ's love. Invite the world to ask you about Christ.

ONE WORD TRAC TEES

Without the hope of Christ, it's difficult to see a future, especially when faced with an illness of the mind. Jesus tells us that he came to give us a future and a hope, so D.R.E. has modeled its mission after Christ. If you wish to give someone hope then point toward Jesus with our One Word Track Tees, a wearable Bible designed to engage others in real talk, a real conversation about our Savior, the living hope.
