In any given year, 1 in 5 people will struggle with a mental health issue. If we said 1 in 5 people will have a compromise in physical health, we would start a prayer chain. But mention that the compromise is a mental health issue, and most people scatter, label, judge, and disappear.
We tend to hide or deny what we cannot control or fix because most of the Western world clings to a dissected view of humanity; we partition our existence into labeled segments, which is often terribly confining and damaging.
Dr. Stanford offers wisdom, knowledge, guidance, and practical tools the church desperately needs in caring for one another. Listen in to parts 1 and 2 of this revisited conversation between Colleen and Dr. Stanford.
