Between the challenges of the pandemic and social isolation of the last six months, many of us and our loved ones find our mental health challenged.
Disability Concerns has had a close relationship with Mental Health Ministries for many years. Their latest newsletter provides excellent resources for facing the challenges we are experiencing.
They speak to the fact that "social isolation, financial distress, fears about health and an uncertain future are fueling a mental health epidemic alongside the COVID-19 pandemic. With many faith communities still practicing social isolation in some form, the challenges for faith leader to provide pastoral care to families dealing with medical and mental illnesses more difficult."
