MENTAL HEALTH GRACE ALLIANCE
Mental Health Grace Alliance is a Christian mental health recovery and support organization that provides resources, support groups, and training to pastors and community leaders so they can help those affected by mental illness. They developed Christ-centered, curriculum-based models for family and peer support groups, trauma and PTSD groups, and young adult groups. The material is designed to work within any denomination, and published research demonstrates the benefits of these groups.
The Grace Alliance has also developed a Mental Health 101 course designed to help pastors and church leaders to recognize the differences between mental health disorders and emotional issues, to learn how to most appropriately respond to persons with mental health difficulties and their families, to build partnerships with the professional community for helping church members and attendees to access necessary services, and to build simple and supportive pastoral care and community supports.
