1 in 5 people have a mental health diagnosis. Mental illness is the most common disease of childhood. But too often, faith communities that are often so supportive of families and individuals with other illnesses remain silent about mental illness.
Outside In Ministries educates local faith communities about mental illness, so the faith communities can be equipped and empowered to support community members living with a mental illness. Once educated, equipped and empowered, faith communities can lovingly support people with mental illness, bringing those too often stigmatized and marginalized into the body of Christ.
