Alison Downie presented her paper, titled “The Shame that Binds: Theology and Mental Illness,” at the American Academy of Religion conference, held in San Diego on November 23–26, 2019. 

The paper argues Christian thought conflates sin and illness, particular mental illness, and therefore shames those living with mental illness.
