Hope That Heals
According to CAMH*:
“In any given year, 1 in 5 Canadians experiences a mental health or addiction problem.”
“Just 50% of Canadians would tell friends or co-workers that they have a family member with a mental illness.”
“Young people aged 15 to 24 are more likely to experience mental illness and/or substance use disorders than any other age group.”
Few people seem to want to talk about their struggles with mental and emotional health. In a time of achievement and performance induced anxieties some choose to quietly cope by themselves in fear of being misunderstood. In this teaching series we want to remove the stigma that is sometimes attached to mental health struggles. We’ll investigate how the Bible honestly and openly deals with common life issues such as depression, anxiety, grief, fear, and anger.
