Mental Health

With gratitude for the good work that they do in the world of Mental Health and Spirituality, we commend to you the many incredible resources available from Sanctuary Mental Health Ministries. Their online Resource Portal provides free access to incredible tools for individuals, churches and groups, which are available within a free account.

The Sanctuary Course is a study guide for small groups in equip churches as they seek to become sanctuaries where people with mental health challenges feel safe, supported, and a sense of belonging. In addition to the coursebook, films, and discussion guides, this resource includes a Facilitation Guide and Participant Guide, an audiobook version of the course, and transcripts of the films.

Sanctuary also offers the following set of resource categories:

As well, they have collaborated with The Porter’s Gate to produce an album of songs about mental health and faith, titled Sanctuary Songs. It centres around the lived experience of people who are often marginalized in churches, and models life-giving and healing ways for congregants to talk (and sing) about mental health challenges. Find it here: Sanctuary Songs.
