FAITH AND MENTAL HEALTH

The current pandemic has brought the issue of mental health to the realm of public conversation, but what role can faith play in struggles with mental health? Fr Billy Swan, a regular contributor to Word on Fire and a parish priest in Ireland, explores this issue, examining saints who suffered from mental health problems, the impact of Christian faith on mental health, and the hope that faith has to offer. Fr Billy Swan is the author of the CTS publication Finding God: Faith and Mental Health and a priest of the Diocese of Ferns in Ireland. Order Finding God: Faith and Mental Health here:
