Mental Health Resources

We believe that the Bible is the supreme authority as our guide to Christian faith and service. We seek to speak where the Bible speaks, and be silent where the Bible is silent. We recognize that issues surrounding mental health affect everyone in our communities and within our homes, and impact our ability to understand God’s plan for us. Our desire is to remove the stigma people who experience mental health challenges face and end the dangerous notion that people have to be okay to go to church. As humans none of us are okay; we all suffer from the brokenness caused by the introduction of sin into our world.

We care about your mental health. Below are a variety of helpful resources related to anxiety, and to depression and suicide. Our hope is that instead of leaning into other coping mechanisms, people with mental health challenges will seek appropriate treatment and lean into Christ.

If you are considering suicide, help is available. Please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (800-273-8255) to reach a trained counselor 24 hours a day.

Anxiety Resources

Anxiety is defined as "a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome." We're living in a world in the grips of a pandemic that has led to lockdowns, homeschooling challenges, and increased joblessness - as we're also dealing with political and social unrest. Is it any wonder many of us are experiencing anxiety these days? We hope that the resources below will bring you comfort and relief.

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, depression is a common but serious mood disorder which causes severe chronic symptoms that affect how you feel, think, and handle daily activities, such as sleeping, eating, or working. At its worst, people who suffer from depression may feel hopeless and consider ending their lives, often not realizing they’re suffering from a treatable illness. If you are experiencing symptoms of depression, we urge you to use the resources below and reach out for help.
