Faith Resources

Mental illness is not the result of weak faith or lack of spiritual willpower. It can’t be “prayed away.” Mental illness is a medical condition that can improve with medical care, counseling and loving support.

For those who are sad, grieving, anxious, addicted or struggling with life’s challenges, the faith community can provide some of that support and be the on the front lines of care. Learn more about what the Bible says about mental health challenges! We can all become better at listening, supporting and praying for those living with mental health concerns.
