Depression causes people to miss the most amount of work days worldwide. This is just one example of how mental health and all it encompasses is ubiquitously important across cultures and nations, and yet it is often overlooked or misunderstood in missional contexts. Brad Smith (US; Catalyst for Care and Counsel as Mission), Saul Cruz Jr (Mexico; psychologist), and Gladys Mwiti (Kenya; CEO/Founder of Oasis Africa, Catalyst for Mental Health and Trauma) discuss the great need for Christian counselling to join hands with world mission in order to better reach a hurting world.

One comment on “Christian Counselling as Global Mission
  1. Prof. Dr. Ulrich Giesekus says:

    Thank you for pointing this out again! I was at the Bangalore conference, part of the Care and Counsel group, and this conference allready inspired many spin offs in research and teaching; conferences and awareness. Let’s pray now for missions efforts in the mission field in the area of mental health, for generous gifts to these efforts and for well trained servants in the field!
