Mental illness and sin
September 7, 2009 1:11 PM Subscribe
I am looking for a forum or community (e.g. Facebook group) about mental illness being dismissed by churches as sin or demon possession, or people with obvious mental illnesses not being referred to doctors by their pastors.
Here is an article

about the issue. I want to find a group of people who are concerned about pastors trying to cure mentally ill people in their congregation instead of referring them to mental health practitioners. Or a group of people with mental illnesses (or their friends and family) who have had their illnesses blamed on their own sins. I am having a hard time with Google because mostly links about "Christianity being a mental illness" come up. Can you help me find a community?
