The Bible and Mental Health - Part One

11Oct

‘The Bible and Mental Health - Part One’
 
We live in a world in which a lot of people are living without hope, desperate in their situation and believing that there is no way out.
 
In Northern Ireland alone,
• 102 suicide deaths were recorded between January - June 2020
• 33 people died by suicide during the first week of September 2020
• Nisra estimates that the overall suicide figure for this year will be somewhere between 200 and 220.
• Previous years 2019 – 197, 2018 – 307, 2017 – 305, 2016 – 298
• Men are 3 times more likely to die from suicide than women.
 
In the Bible we can see that many of the characters also suffered anxiety, depression, fear, hurt (emotional), stress, betrayal and many other issues that caused them to suffer mentally
 
Pastor Alan Stephens intends, over the next few weeks, to look at these characters and see if we can learn from them on how they dealt with their problems and issues.
 
God bless, Glenmachan.
