The Importance of Faith in Mental Healthcare
with Prof Kuruvilla George
WHEN: Wednesday 24th March at 7PM
DURATION: 1 hour presentation + 30 mins Q&A
WHERE: Online Webinar
There is abundant evidence that faith makes a difference in healthcare. This concept is foreign to many of us due to our very secular training. There is no attention given to the spiritual needs of our clients/patients/consumers even though it might be important to them. We need to re-think the importance that faith has on mental healthcare. This webinar will look at some of the evidence and what our response should be as Christian mental healthcare providers.
