In partnership with Sanctuary Mental Health Ministries, Regent College presents Illuminating Mental Health During a Season of Darkness: A Fireside Chat for Pastors with Dr. John Swinton.
During our time together, you can anticipate a robust conversation about mental health in the pandemic, the ongoing impacts for church leaders, and how we can support our communities—and ourselves—in the approaching winter and throughout the ongoing reality of pandemic life.
John Swinton is one of Sanctuary’s ambassadors and has served as summer faculty for Regent College. He is the Chair in Divinity and Religious Studies at the School of Divinity, History, and Philosophy, University of Aberdeen. John has worked as a registered mental health nurse, and as a hospital and community mental health chaplain. He is particularly interested in mental health issues as they relate to the spiritual dimensions of care. He has published in the fields of disability, theology, spirituality and health, and qualitative research and mental health. He is also the founder of the Centre for Spirituality, Health, and Disability, where academics, researchers, practitioners, and educators collaborate on innovative projects researching the theology of disability and the relationship between spirituality, health and healing, and contemporary healthcare practices.
COVID regulations will be held in compliance with British Columbia’s provincial health order. Masks will be required, and physically distanced seating will be available. Event registration is limited to 30 people. Please register online by clicking “more information” below. We will be checking registrations at the door.
