In honor of Mental Illness Awareness Week, Pathway’s own Rev. Jermine Alberty joined Pastor Brad Hoefs on Fresh Hope for Mental Health’s weekly podcast to discuss how having faith in God helps people on their journey to recovery from the challenges of mental illness, why it’s important for Pastors to tell people in their congregation who have a mental illness to take their medicine, and how to help a person who is in distress.

Fresh Hope is a peer-to-peer Christ-centered wellness approach to mental health recovery based upon six tenets that empower people to connect both their faith and recovery principles. This approach both empowers and encourages individuals to live full and rich lives in spite of their diagnosis.
