In recent years, there has been an increase in incidences of mental health challenges in the community.

A survey conducted in early 2020 showed that the church community has not been spared. Many among God’s people are similarly afflicted with mental health challenges.

Increasingly, church leaders must confront the issue of serious mental health challenges among their flock and the deeper question of whether they, or their members, are equipped to support fellow Christians with such challenges.

Having organised a successful first Christian Mental Health Conference in July 2021 and the second in 2022, Christian Mental Health Advocates, Association of Christian Counsellors Singapore and Promises Healthcare, a leading private psychiatric and psychological services company, have come together once again to organise the third Christian Mental Health Conference.

The conference seeks to provide clinical perspectives on the issues of mental health and how this stands in relation to biblical teachings. The conference also seeks to promote collaboration between the church and Christian mental health professionals.

Several social services agencies, especially those led by Christian leaders, will be featured to provide information on available resources in the community. A variety of other professional services that support mental health wellness will also be made available through booths and onsite information.

About the organiser:
Christian Mental Health Advocates is a community of Christian mental health advocates coming together to form a Prayer Group that meets monthly to worship God and seek His will in the area of work in its agencies.

Association of Christian Counsellors (Singapore) is a group of Christian counsellors called by God to work as one complete body to bring God’s healing love to the world. It aims to position and profile the Christian counselling profession in Singapore, gather and identify Christian counsellors and Christian practitioners, establish core competencies and training programmes  in Christian counselling, and connect the Christian community and general public to Christian counselling services.

Founded in 2011 by Dr Munidasa Winslow, Promises Healthcare offers a wide range of psychiatric, psychological and physical well-being services for children, adolescents, youths, young adults and adults. The team of psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, and executive coaches take on a diverse and multidisciplinary approach to treatment. The care and well-being of patients are at the heart of its service and treatments are based on the latest clinically proven protocols in the field of neuroscience and psychology.

This conference is also supported by APCCS, Love Singapore, The Bible Society, Salt&Light and Bethesda Bedok-Tampines Church.
