Perseverance: Moving Towards Mental Wellness / ALLAN & BONNIE GALLANT

The Agora Network story began with a crisis, a mental health and spiritual crisis that founder Allan Gallant suffered in his life. 

On July 7th, 2017, in a split second, Allan's life changed when he suffered a severe stroke, but God protected his body, the only paralysis he suffered was in his speech. After a month of recovery and learning to speak again, he began the hardest battle of his life, a battle with mental illness; PTSD, severe Anxiety and Depression. Allan thought if this was his new normal then he didn't want to live. He was admitted into a mental health unit for 10 days where he began to recover mentally and spiritually. The road was long and hard at times, but God's goodness led to repentance and the ongoing restoration of his soul. From crisis, Agora Network Ministries was birthed and a new journey began in ministry for Allan and his wife Bonnie. 

Agora Network Ministries is an incorporated Ministry that provides resources that meaningfully engage the topics of faith and mental health. Their content is developed in collaboration with theologians, psychologists and people who live with their own mental health challenges. These resources prepare communities of faith to raise awareness, reduce stigma, support mental health and promote mental well-being.
