Understanding Mental Illness
Matthew Stanford, CEO of the Hope and Healing Center & Institute in Houston, Texas, believes if Christians want to help those struggling with mental disorders, they have to understand what they are. Stanford explains we are all broken to some degree due to original sin, and we need to treat those affected by mental illness with the same compassion and respect as those battling cancer or any other illness. Mental disorders are a combination of biology and environment, like prenatal care, and those with them have the same spiritual needs as anyone else.
