May is Mental Health Awareness Month. With one in four adults struggling with mental illness each year, there's no doubt that there are people in church who need love and support. Unfortunately, the church hasn't always done a great job of ministering to those affected by mental illness. This Bible study explores mental illness and how the church can help. It also helps clear up myths and begins to put the stigmas in the past.
