“The last few months have been the hardest of my life”. That was the admission made by the Rev Ron Rye, pastor at Ardbeg Baptist Church on Bute, as he spoke to The Buteman about his recent battle with mental health issues.

Ron has bravely agreed to tell The Buteman about his experience with the illness, in the hope it might speak to others in similar situations.
