Help, faith lead Steven Manning back from the depths of severe depression
The News-Sentinel – November 5, 2013
Summary: Carriage House member, Steven Manning, was the subject of an article in the Ft. Wayne News-Sentinel recently. Manning, who now runs his own production company, was at his lowest point 12 years ago, suffering from bipolar disorder. He was gradually helped to recovery through his faith, help from a local mental health center and Carriage House. “The Clubhouse focuses on a person’s skills, talents and interests,” said Manning who started going there in 2001. Andy Wilson, Carriage House Executive Director, said that a transitional job began to set Manning’s life on its current positive course. “I remember him pushing himself beyond where he was comfortable,” Wilson said. But Manning kept at it. He launched his company, Manning Video Productions, while still at Carriage House, achieved his goal of earning a master’s degree and with the help of medication has been symptom free since 2008.
