Did you know that, according to Mental Health Ministries,
“Surveys show that sixty percent of Americans seeking help with mental health issues turn first to ministers, priests and rabbis. This is twice as many as those who went first to a psychiatrist, psychologist or family physician.”
Wow! Not only that, but not all of these leaders are adequately prepared with the information to provide the help that’s needed. Here’s a link to wonderful resource you can download:
This is full of lots of wonderful information. I guarantee it will set you on a realistic path toward being of real help to your members who are so in need of your support when mental illness comes into their family.
Thanks for all you do!
