The Stigma Around Mental Illness for Christians

For decades there has been a debate regarding the stigma around mental illness for Christians. For centuries, people have considered mental health treatment and Christianity as two separate fields with no relationship between them. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. experiences mental illness in a given year. That’s 43.8 million people, or 18.5% of the population. And 64% of Americans identify as Christian, making it likely that mental illness affects this large population.

How to Live Mentally Healthy and Stay Mentally Healthy

The words how to live mentally healthy and stay mentally healthy might sound like empty buzzwords with no meaning, especially if you are struggling with mental health and feel as if you have nowhere to turn for help. We want you to know that help is available.

Sharing Our Personal Experience With Mental Health Reduces Stigma and Can Help Our Community

When you talk about your experiences with your mental health, you’re not only able to help yourself by getting the services and support you need, you’re able to help those you share your story with. When you share your story, you normalize your experiences and others who are going through the same thing are validated, and are more likely to also seek help. This knocks down barriers and, in time, will lead to a healthier, happier community.
