Pastor Roberts Featured In Wall Street Journal Article Documenting Congregational Responses To The Surge In Mental Health Needs

The Religious Leaders on the Front Lines of Mental Health

Details

Houses of worship have grown more sophisticated in their handling of the surge in anxiety among congregants since the pandemic began

People who had been sober for 10 or 15 years worried they might start drinking again. Some mentioned suicide. Couples who rarely argued were yelling at each other. When the church resumed in-person services June 13, a new tension emerged: surprisingly angry reactions from some members to any pandemic-related safeguards that remained in place. Other clergy he talked to have seen similar levels of acrimony. About one in four people with mental-health concerns turn to a clergy member before seeking help from clinical professionals, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, giving faith leaders a unique window on the mental health of many Americans.
