MENTAL HEALTH, FAITH, AND COVID-19 WITH DANNY CHEAH

Danny Cheah, Head of Clinical Services at the Alfred Hospital Child and Youth Mental Health Service in Melbourne, Australia, discusses what churches can do to support people living with mental health challenges. He talks about the importance of self-care; the need to reclaim spirituality in the mental health space; and how Christian discipleship is essential in plugging the gaps between the struggles we face daily and what Scripture teaches about living our lives.
