troubled-mindsInterVarsity Press (IVP) authors Amy Simpson (Troubled Minds) and Timothy Jennings (The God-Shaped Brain) have been honored for their books and contributions to the field of health.

Simpson is the Hope and Healing Center’s 2016 Chrysalis Award winner. The center, in Houston, Texas, annually honors an individual who has significantly advanced the cause of those with mental health problems and battled the stigma of mental illness. Simpson received the award for her book Troubled Minds and her speaking ministry. 

Jennings, a noted psychiatrist, was named a Champion of Health by True Health Broadcasting Network in association with True Health TV and the Health Institute for Preventive Care, Access, Research and Education (HIPCARE). Jennings will receive the Legacy Champion of Health award at a gala April 9 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The award letter states that Jennings was presented with the award for “unselfish commitment to community health exemplified by your leadership in the community and as the author of The God-Shaped Brain and Could It Be This Simple? A Biblical Model for Healing the Mind.”
