Title: Christianity & Mental Health
Course Section Number: GHL-219-02
Department: Global Health
Description: This seminar will focus on the intersection of Christianity and mental health in the United States. Some of the questions we will consider include: In what ways does Christianity make sense of mental illness and disorder? How might Christianity contribute to mental health and well-being, on the one hand, and to mental disorders on the other? The U.S. today suffers from an epidemic of anxiety, depression, and loneliness. How does the Christian church address these issues, along with others like mental handicaps and destructive behaviors such as addictions? Finally, what are the particular mental health challenges facing young people today, especially young men, and what resources might the American Christian tradition bring to bear on them?
