Carla Cornelius Ph.D - aka Dr Joyful
Dr Carla gained her doctorate in Biblical Counselling from Trinity School of the Bible and Theological Seminary in Newburgh, Indiana. Her focus continues to be gleaning spiritual and practical insights to redirect those who are suicidal.
She was inspired with the SINAVO(Suicide is not a viable option) mantra when she was a teenager. Whenever she would hear of a suicide, usually by way of the news or a third party, something would stir within her. It was an illogical response in a girl who had never personally experienced this tragedy up close and personal. Yet she felt such compassion for the suicidal, suicide completers and “those left behind” to wade through the quagmire of this avoidable waste of human life and potential.
This compassion has persisted to this day.
