Taking Our Meds Faithfully: A Christian Perspective on Psychiatric Medication

Finding Jesus in the Storm

Psychiatric medication doesn’t cure mental illness.

Medication just might be what someone needs to begin cultivating a greater level of mental health.

In this talk, Ryan discusses:

  • How embodiment informs a Christian perspective on psychiatric medication
  • Using medication to alleviate suffering
  • Viewing medication as a means, not an end
