Clergy and Faith Community Leaders

Mental health challenges and substance use disorders

Interfere with the capacity of addicted individuals and their family members to develop and sustain a healthy lifestyle, relationships, and a meaningful spiritual life. Clergy and other faith community leaders have a wide array of opportunities to address these problems and lead hurting families to recovery support and healing.

Churches and faith communities can provide essential support networks to individuals who need, or are considering, or undergoing treatment for their mental illness or substance use disorder.

Terros Health has assembled the resources on this page to help clergy and other faith leaders locate the tools and information to create awareness, acceptance, and support in their faith communities.

Terros Health can help ready your faith community for assisting individual members who need treatment. We offer the opportunity to partner on Mental Health First Aid training for key community leadership or members as well as the following resources for your use.
