In a two-part series, we have guest Amanda Dunlap to share her experiences and expertise on mental health in the hopes of educating us on a topic that is often misunderstood. She talks with us about why this is an important topic of discussion for church leaders in particular, and she addresses the role churches can play in creating a healthy atmosphere concerning mental health awareness. She explains why many are afraid to be open about their mental health struggles and how the pandemic has drastically increased the suffering. Amanda gives us healthy ways to cope with stress, three “to knows” for church leaders, and additional resources for mental health treatment.
