The Gospel & Mental Illness
At the Biblical Counseling Center Of Maui, we are committed to offering skilled Biblical care and counseling for a range of problems that people face. We also believe that God has given us, in His Word, everything we need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). Often when considering where to seek help and counseling, people wonder what possible help and hope can we give to those who are diagnosed with a mental illness. Isn’t that what the psychologist is for?
In 4 articles, Heath Lambert, the former executive director of the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC) discusses the spiritual nature of mental illness. In this series, you, the reader, will find some very shocking admissions from the chairman of the DSM-IV (essentially the bible for mental health practitioners) and others in the field. Additionally, you’ll find the unique and superior hope and help the Word of God has for the care of the soul. Here’s part 1. Check it out:
