Whether it be out of fear, stigma, or a desire to protect, caregivers who provide for the needs of loved ones with mental illness often shoulder the many and misunderstood challenges that accompany a diagnosis. These caregivers are also susceptible to physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual exhaustion.
Faith communities have a unique opportunity to extend tangible love, support, and respite. As a result, they can help caregivers before burnout even begins. In this webinar, we explain Principle #3 — The Caregiver Principle — and explore how faith communities can lean into this work, supporting caregivers of family members with mental illness to thrive.
