Life for people with serious mental illness can be isolating, but it does not have to be that way, say psychiatrists Warren Kinghorn and Abraham Nussbaum.
Instead, churches can do much to welcome, be with and support those with mental illness.
“The Christian life, with its account of patience, charity, responsibility and the other virtues, offers a more robust response [than the culture at large],” Nussbaum said.
Learning how to be friends with people with mental illness is really about learning how to be friends with people generally, Kinghorn said.
