Christian Mental Health Treatment
Allowing God’s help to heal
People with mental health problems like depression, anxiety, panic attacks, an eating disorder or mood control problems and individuals struggling to free themselves from addiction to drugs, alcohol or other self-damaging behaviors can feel
abandoned by God and distant from the faith which has nurtured them. They may be angry at God for their own inability to control their feelings, mood state or behaviors. In reality, they are frustrated with themselves for allowing their lives to spin out of control. In the pursuit of change we can help the process of therapies and medications to work better through the addition of a spiritual component to psychiatric and psychological treatment.
