About CCFMH

About Us..

“Christian Concern For Mental Health” (CCFMH) is an independent International Christian Ministry which seeks to…

  • To promote awareness and concern for mental health and those who suffer with mental illness and poor mental health.
  • To encourage all Christians to renew their thinking on mental illness and poor mental health.
  • To encourage and mobilize all Christians to include mental illness and poor mental health, and those who suffer from them, in their every day prayer lives and ministries.
  • To encourage Christian writers and bloggers to incorporate Mental Health awareness and the need for good compassionate and positive concern for it within their blogs and writing.

Mindful of the effects that mental illness and poor mental health can have not only on our everyday lives and relationships with each other but also our lives in Christ and our relationship with God through Christ we stand however on faith and on the promise of Romans 8:37-39.

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (NIV)

What we believe…

We believe in the Holy Trinity – God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe that salvation and a relationship with God is desired by God and is open to all being made possible through a personal relationship with Christ.

We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God.

We believe that poor mental health and mental illness are very real issues threatening all people regardless of class, status, nationality, faith, creed or colour. Additionally we believe them not to be bigger than God’s love, power and mercy but very much within God’s love, power and mercy.

We believe in the power of prayer, God’s faithfulness, the presence, place and purpose of Christ in our lives in accordance with God’s will and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit made possible through that presence, place and purpose of Christ.

  1. Can you please add the “Follow” widget to your side bar so I can get e-mails of your latest posts? I don’t want to go through Twitter or Facebook. If you add the “Follow” widget, I can get e-mails directly from you.
    Thanks

  2. I know this sounds like advertising [which is a bad thing I’ve heard] but I must say it anyway since you are a full-bore Christian – like me. You can do as you see fit with it. Delete it at this point now if you wish. Anyway; here it is…..

    I wrote a page about who I am and I’d really like you to read it. It’s called “Who Am I?” and it tells more about who I am and a quick synopsis of my life [I also have a mental health issue to deal with but I don’t talk about that much]. I would especially like you – as a like-minded Christian like me – to read it. I have seen Jesus, as fully in the flesh as one can get – one world to another. There are 2 “Pages” on top that tell the story of how I met Him in 1982. Also there is a page about feeding finches that really deepened my faith in God & Jesus.

  3. Dear CCFMH,

    Thank you so much for what you’re doing! This is very important work, for both Christian and secular sufferers of mental illness alike. As a Christian myself, I have seen how churches can be ill-equipped to support/understand mental illness. I’ve struggled with various degrees of depression. I would describe my last, most severe experience with it as being trapped in a vortex of mind games, lies, and self-loath. For the veil to be lifted, be it occasionally or for good, is truly a miracle. Nothing has brought me closer to my Creator than experiencing depression, and there’s much potential for other mental sufferers, with the right support and guidance, to also experience their suffering as a means to know God more personally. (P.S. I blog about mental health, faith, and life in general.)

    • Hi Karen,

      Many thanks for getting in touch and for your kind words. Please accept my apologies for not having responded sooner but I have been unwell.

      I agree with you that our mental health challenges can very much bring us closer to the Lord and that the potential for us all is so vast.

      God bless you.
      Kevin
