Can mental health challenges and faith co-exist? Join Sarah Kift, a member of the Sanctuary Mental Health Ministries team, as she interviews theologians, writers, leaders, and people living with mental health challenges. If you want inspiration, insight, and resources to equip your community to be a sanctuary for all people, at all stages of their mental wellness journeys, this is the podcast for you.

During this unprecedented season, we are continuing to release our regularly scheduled podcast episodes, even as we share resources specifically related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Through drawing our awareness to faith and mental health, the podcast offers a healthy reprieve from media that may be specifically pandemic-focused while providing an opportunity to learn about a topic that is supportive of our communities in these times.
