Churches and the Mentally Ill

One out of 10 people will experience a severe and persistent mental illness at some point in life. During the last 15 years, Holy Comforter Episcopal Church in Atlanta has developed a ministry to the mentally ill. Today, almost two-thirds of the congregation is made up of people with mental illness who worship together. In an 8-minute video article prepared for Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly, a cutting-edge religion news reporting and analysis program, correspondent Deborah Potter explores the role faith and worship play in the lives of mentally ill Christians.
