Summary:

People in lay and ordained ministry regularly come in contact with those who are dealing with their own or loved ones’ mental health issues or relational distress. People in ministry may also struggle with such things themselves. It is of some importance then to be equipped to recognize the signs of psychological difficulties and distress, and to have some basic skills in responding constructively and compassionately within the appropriate limits of pastoral training and competence.
