Do You Suffer From Mental Illness? Turning To Religion May Help

Let's make use of our churches in providing care for the mentally ill. Churches have been a refuge for hundreds of years. For many of us, places of worship are perfect for assisting in the care of the mentally ill because sometimes all one needs is someone to listen, a shoulder to lean on, a cup of tea, or a quiet place. Spiritual care is available to all, rich or poor, religious or not. And the infrastructure is already in place.
