The Intersection of Mental Health and Faith

I was doing some reflection recently and one thing that this pandemic has amplified and solidified for me is the need to attack things, both naturally and spiritually. We need both. We need to wear our masks AND confess healing over our bodies. If you’re wanting to get married soon, you need to pray for your spouse AND go out and meet people. The area where I see the most misalignment with this is when it comes to mental health and faith.  To shed some insight on the intersection of mental health and faith, I invited Tiffany on the show.

Tiffany is a clinical practitioner well astute in working with clients by providing individual, group, and family therapy.  Tiffany works to develop clients’ self-efficacy by using mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, and family-centered/strength-based approaches. This enables each of her clients to explore emotions, relationship patterns, and trauma. 

In 2016, Tiffany founded Pathways Toward Peace; an NJ based non-profit whose mission is to increase mental health literacy and provide capacity building to faith and community-based organizations.

When it comes to mental health and faith, Tiffany believes that “it is not enough to pray for people who are hurting. We have to love them, serve them, and send them to get help.” She is committed to equipping faith-based leaders and communities with the knowledge and resources they need to address mental health concerns.

Mental Health and Faith

In this episode we covered…
  • What led Tiffany to the world of mental health
  • Mental health literacy and why is it important for women of color, specifically
  • The role faith plays in mental health
  • Things we should unlearn about faith and what walking in faith really looks
  • How mental health support plays a role in discovering and living a life of purpose 
  • Tips for deciphering if your therapist is the right fit for you
  • How long you should stick with a therapist before you decide it isn’t a good fit

Mental health and faith are not mutually exclusive. We need both. If you want to try therapy, I encourage you to visit Psychology Today.
