People with mental illness and their families will often come to a clergy person and Faith Community leaders first when symptoms of the illness strike. It is important for clergy
and leaders listen with compassion and to know when to refer people to mental health professionals rather than attempt to solve psychological problems themselves or dismiss
the problem. It is also important to know where in the community one can refer people for competent professional help and services. This can be done by forming relationships
with mental health professionals and agencies. And it is equally important to stay in touch with the person and/or their family after a referral as major mental illness can cause
a crisis of faith. People with mental illness and their families need the ongoing support of the Faith Community as well as professional help. The Faith Community can make a real
difference in people’s lives when it reaches out and continues to support individuals and families affected by this disease.
