WORKSHOP

Mental Health and Addiction Workshop

Saturday, Mar 10, 2018 at 9:30AM - 12:30 PM
Sanctuary-general-480

Mental health and addiction are often brought into the same conversation; however, what are the connections between the two?  

In this session, we will explore how substance misuse is related to mental health and illness, and the intersections that help explain why they often co-occur.  What are some ways in which the church community can support mental health and the process of addiction treatment and recovery? Together, we will examine the spiritual, psychological, biological and social roots of addiction and their contribution to the mental health journey.

Featured speakers:

Fiona Choi, PhD, Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Institute of Mental Health at UBC
Daniel Whitehead, MA, Executive Director of Sanctuary Mental Health Ministries   

About the Sanctuary Mental Health Workshop Series

Last year, Regent College partnered with Sanctuary Mental Health Ministries to offer our first series of workshops on faith and mental health at Regent. Due to overwhelmingly positive response, we are offering a second series of workshops this year.

The sessions are complementary and participants are strongly encouraged to attend all three if possible. The workshop event dates are November 4, 2017, and February 3 & March 10, 2018.
