RENEWAL is designed to offer hope and comfort to people suffering from mental health disorders or addiction disorders, and support to the people who love them. Our approach is based on respect for the dignity of the people we serve and the belief that through a faith-based program, life-changing results are possible.

RENEWAL: Christian Treatment and Recovery is an optional treatment supplement available through Brookhaven Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma. At Brookhaven, we understand that when you are suffering from an eating disorder, a personality disorder, a behavioral health disorder or chemical dependency, life can seem utterly hopeless. It can cause Christians to feel abandoned and distant from God. However, by strengthening your spirituality, in conjunction with our professional medical services, you can experience results that you never thought were possible.

RENEWAL is based on the belief in:

God who created us and loves us (Genesis 1:26)
Jesus Christ who redeems us (Isaiah 53:5)
The Holy Spirit who guides us (Acts 1:8)

When you participate in RENEWAL, you’re part of something much bigger than yourself. Brookhaven clients receive expert care from our team of mental professionals. Treatment is solution-focused and success-oriented. Our goal is to minimize symptoms, help individuals address life problems and live fulfilling lives. Sometimes healing requires a helping hand. We’re here to provide the guidance and support you need to recover.

What Christians Should Know About Depression and Anxiety


MentalHealthDepression and anxiety are reaching epidemic levels within the United States. It is estimated that 10 percent of all adults report experiencing depression at some point in their lives, and 18 percent will experience anxiety. Yet, these mental health issues are two of the most commonly dismissed mental illnesses in society.

The problem lies in undereducation, misconceptions about the illnesses, and a culture that often overlooks mental health in general.

These problems exist in and outside of the church. It may seem like I am often harsh on the reactions from the church to mental illness, but many of the problems supporting the high rates of mental illness in the modern age exist throughout our entire society. However, many Christian groups have additional stigma that can turn make the situation even worse.

To explain it in another way, there are two different groups of misconceptions and misunderstandings about mental health. Those that exist in the wider American culture are equally dangerous, but the misunderstandings within the church are often unique and only compound the issue.

Brandon W. Peach noticed these two separate forms of misunderstanding and sought to address the issues specific to the church with an article titled “5 Things Christians Should Know About Depression and Anxiety”.

As Christians are gradually beginning to reform how we talk about and respond to mental health, this article offers a good starting place for addressing many of the misunderstandings that fuel the stigma around mental health and explaining how we can more compassionately think about depression, anxiety, and all mental illness.
