Four Areas of Intervention- #4 Spiritual

Our spiritual life also has great impact on our mental health. Many Christians struggle with depression, anxiety, and many other mental health concerns. Then they feel guilty for being a Christian with these struggles, making them more distressed. Our relationship with God can have great impact, positive and negative, on our mood. A number of spiritual topics can impact mood. Some of them include, sin, poor theology, inappropriate guilt, spiritual abuse, lack of forgiveness and many more. Helping clients to sort these things out, and helping them understand the love and grace of God can be incredibly healing.

Also, our relationship with God has significant impact on the other three areas I've discussed. Scripture has much to say about taking care of ourselves physically, psychologically and relationally. We must let God's word guide us in these areas of our life as well.
