Children, teens and adults who have common mental health conditions often struggle with feeling included in the church.
Participants in this webinar will examine research that describes the impacts of mental illness on church attendance and defines the barriers that prevents people with mental health challenges from assimilating in the faith community. Dr. Stephen Grcevich will present a mental health inclusion model that can be adapted to churches of all sizes and denominations, as well as examples of innovative mental health ministries.
Dr. Grcevich is the founder and President of Key Ministry. He is a child and adolescent psychiatrist who is the primary vision caster and spokesperson for Key and plays an important role in Key’s efforts to develop collaborations with church leaders, professionals, and organizations both within and outside the disability ministry movement. He is an experienced clinician, teacher, and researcher, with over 35 presentations at national and international medical conferences and a past recipient of the Exemplary Psychiatrist Award from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). His first book Mental Health and the Church was published in 2018.
