Mental health and the role gratitude plays
Mental health is something we don’t talk about as much as we should. There’s a lot of stigma. Some people think that physical well-being is simply more important. (You can see a broken leg, but you can’t see a mental bruise.)
But did you realize that by the age of forty, about 50% of people in Canada will have or have had a mental illness?
Because there’s so much misunderstanding, there can also be denial… and guilt… and even blame…
So on Thanksgiving Sunday, we talked about the role that gratitude plays in mental health — from a scientific perspective, and even more importantly, from a biblical one.
So if you want to improve your mental health, and if you want to set yourself up for better health in the future, this message is for you. As Max Lucado says, “God doesn’t just want your whole heart; he wants your heart whole.”
