Paul Lu

National Alliance on Mental Illness

Paul Lu is a member of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).  Paul volunteers as the FaithNet Coordinator for NAMI Orange County, California.  FaithNet is the faith-based arm of NAMI reaching out to faith communities of all faiths promoting mental health initiatives.  He is also a certified trainer for the NAMI Family to Family, NAMI Mental Health 101, and NAMI Provider programs.  In September 2017 Paul was voted in as a member of the NAMI California Board of Directors.

Paul and his family lived and worked in Hong Kong from 2011 to 2015.  He has a daughter with a mental health diagnosis of schizophrenia.  Paul and his family experienced first-hand how difficult it is to care for a loved one with a severe mental illness while living in Hong Kong.  As a parent, Paul understands the family dynamics and stress a family is under when a loved one has a mental illness.  He believes faith can play a significant role towards the wellbeing of those who are mentally ill, their families, and friends.
Paul holds a Doctor of Business Administration degree from Nova Southeastern University, a Master of Aeronautical Science degree from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and a Master of Theology degree from Fuller Theological Seminary.  He is currently pursuing a Doctor of Ministry degree at Fuller and his research is focused on Faith and Mental Illness.  Paul served as a local preacher at the Methodist International Church when he was in Hong Kong.
