Spiritual Dimensions of Mental Health
Health--physical, mental, spiritual. All three are closely related. But in modern mental-health care one of them is often neglected. Nurses, social workers and counselors are rarely taught to minister to their client's spiritual needs. In fact, they are sometime told to ignore them altogether. But spiritual needs can play a part in any illness. They may become especially strong when the mind and emotions are affected.

John and other mental-health professionals to show how Christians can minister effectively to such deep needs.
