Kay Warren calls mental illness “the no-casserole illness.”

“When I was diagnosed with cancer, people took turns to bring in casseroles and help us out,” she said.

But, when it comes to mental illness, a sense of discomfort takes over, said the wife of Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren and the church’s co-founder.
