Mental illness is not the result of weak faith, not enough prayer 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 support, encouragement and hope. The resources here are intended to assist people living with, or support people whose loved ones are living with, substance use, anxiety, depression or suicidal thoughts. We can all become better at listening, supporting and praying for those living with mental health concerns.
