The Local Church: A Safe Place to Struggle? Hospitals, mental institutions and local counselors are all part of the system that seeks to care for people with psychiatric disorders. What role does the church have… a country club or a hospital? How does your church care for people with unique challenges? Do you outsource and refer? Do you communicate subtly that they are not welcome because your church is a place for the socially well-adjusted? This session will equip you to embrace the call of God to care for your neighbor, regardless of their struggles.
