Mental health issues are real whether you are a Christian or not.  As the subject of mental health and mental illness are repeatedly in the media headlines and discussed more openly in Christian and secular arenas, our desire is to equip you and your family with helpful information.
We hope the following resources and referrals will help you and your loved ones as you work through the complexities of mental health and mental illness.

Counselor Referrals

God is always with us in our circumstances, and most importantly God does not want us to go through it alone. God teaches us to always seek knowledge and lean on each other for assistance. 
Proverbs 18:15 NIV says, The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge, for the ears of the wise seek it out.” 
Proverbs 27:17 KJV reads, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” Because of this, we believe good Christian counseling is very helpful.
