Thanks for the honest , candid post Spriggy!

And Dr Williams, it is a pleasure to have your expert opinions here ( Thanks too to Dr Bob)

I too am a pastor of a small non-denominational Protestant church

also have had a love for physcology all my life.

I have stated before that it seems like disorders
of the mind and enotions are treated SO differently in the church...and that it is a shame. The same folks who developed Adult Onset TypeII Diabetes for example...would not hesitate to go to their physician and get treatment.
The church readily agree's and embraces this.

But to take that same person and find out that they have visited a physcologist or( heaven forbid..a Physciatrist lol!~ )now they are labeled and stigmatized as crazy, possesed,unstable, and in need of being institutionalized!!!!!!! How sad.

I long for the day when mental and emotional disorders are percieved by the patient and the public, as equally valid as a physical injury...and that it BE OK . to seek treatment from an medical expert in THAT field...just as we would from a MD.

Thanks for your work...and keep it up!

God bless
Pastor John ( aka Buckeye Fan)
