Does The Faith-Based Community Need to do MORE with Helping those dealing with mental health issues and contemplating suicide?
Manage episode 297058202 series 2933349
In Episode #8 of Wellness Action Recovery, "The W.A.R." podcast, I will be discussing how the faith-based community needs to do a better job of helping members of their congregation not be ashamed and get help, when it comes to mental health, addiction and suicidal thoughts.
Mental health and physical health are one. Therefore, the faith-based community should recognize that, not judge and be willing to help anyone in their congregation who is struggling. The way churches have looked at those dealing with mental health issues, addiction and suicidal thoughts are another deterrent in helping people get the help they need.
The more we work together and let them know, "Help is available," the better off they will be.
