Mental Illnesses and Faith Communities

Posted by SuzyQ on May 31, 2002, at 3:45:01

What have you experienced in your church/faith community in how they approach mental illness? Is it stigmatized still? Is it ignored? Is it dealt with? Can you be transparent about your struggles?

For me, my depression was affected by many things--chemical, hormonal, spiritual. . . It took me a long time to address all of those areas (still am working on them *grin*) But, for me, it is clear that there is a spiritual aspect in my life that can't be ignored as I address the depression in my life.

Online, I've seen Christians/other believers quite willing to talk about these things. And I've seen people in the church willing to talk about them, too--but not nearly as much.
