Creating Caring Communities for People with Substance Use and Mental Illness and Their Families. To paraphrase Matthew 25:35-36, “I acted strangely and you welcomed me, I was sick and you sent someone to see me and found me help, I was hungry and you brought me food.” Christ asks us to reach out and help one another. This leaflet discusses the frequent occurrence of drug and alcohol use with persons with mental illness. It offers concrete suggestions on ways to help.
Pathways to Promise has created leaflets utilizing information from different faith traditions along with information regarding mental illnesses and how faith communities can assist them. These resources can be used at a time of the year that is appropriate for your faith community; or in conjunction with mental health awareness months which include May, which is Mental Health Month; during Mental Illness Awareness Week, which is the first week of October.
