Mental health is one of the greatest challenges currently facing the western world and, by extension, the church. One in five Canadians will experience a mental health issue in any given year, rising to one in three over the course of a lifetime.
As Christians, how do we think well about mental health? How can we care effectively for those in our communities who struggle with mental illness? What can we learn from Christian tradition, practice, and scripture? And how do we learn to listen to one another’s stories?
Regent College and Sanctuary Mental Health Ministries are partnering to provide a series of three Saturday morning workshops exploring these questions. While each workshop can stand alone, participants will benefit significantly from attending all three.
Cost: $50 per session ($35 for students and seniors)
Mental Health, Faith & Community
With Dr. Sharon Smith, Sanctuary Mental Health Ministries
June 11, 2016 from 9:30 am–12:30 pm
Join us at this workshop as we consider how to approach mental health and mental illness as followers of Christ. Explore mental health models that are theologically and philosophically faithful to Christian tradition, practice and scripture. Hear the stories of Christians who live with mental illness. Finally, learn how Christian community can more effectively attend to our collective well-being.
