Pastor-turned-author wants to educate about mental illness


Follow The Republic:


COLUMBUS, Ind. — In the middle of the night and amid the deep darkness of his life, Tony Roberts thought he heard God tell him to kill himself.

A handful of psychotic drugs and a few moments later, he desperately reached his psychiatrist on the phone. The specialist told him to “just sleep it off.”

The 20-year former Presbyterian USA pastor will begin sharing his story during a free presentation at 6:30 p.m. March 24 at the Red Room of Columbus’ Bartholomew County Public Library, 536 Fifth St.

Please read Saturday's edition of The Republic for more details.
