S2:E11 Theology & Mental Health

What does it look like to integrate our emotional and mental health with our faith? We’ve likely all experienced, or ourselves said some things in this area that are unhelpful and even hurtful. On this episode we talk to theologian John Swinton and psychologist Peace Amadi to hear their thoughts on fruitful ways to consider our mental health in relationship to our minds, bodies, God, and others. Tune in to find out what we can learn about being human by paying attention to our emotions and the lives of those with mental health challenges.

John Swinton is Professor in Practical Theology and Pastoral Care and Chair in Divinity and Religious Studies at the University of Aberdeen. He is an ordained minister of the Church of Scotland who for more than a decade worked as a registered nurse specializing in psychiatry and learning disabilities. John is the author of many books including Finding Jesus in the Storm: The Spiritual Lives of Christians with Mental Health Challenges.

Peace Amadi is Associate Professor of Psychology and Counseling at Hope International University. She is the founder of The Pink Couch to empower women and The Ruby Project for survivors of trauma and abuse. Peace is the author of Why Do I Feel Like This?: Understand Your Difficult Emotions and Find Grace to Move Through.
