Women's Ministries presented Thinking Well, Living Well for the first time during the WM Mental Health Track at the Global Health Congress in Geneva, July 8-12, 2014. This series of ten seminars about mental health will help Christians openly and compassionately talk about this subject. Many members in the Seventh-day Adventist Church suffer silently, live in pain and shame, and sometimes leave the church because they feel God has forsaken them. The time has come for the Church to become educated and to recognize when members need help.
Thinking Well, Living Well seminar packets are available for $10 each through General Conference Women's Ministries. For more information, call +1 (301) 680-6636 or email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Seminar titles: Understanding Mental Health; The Mind and Body Connection: Connection and Community; The Mind and Body Connection: Lifestyle and Entertainment; Hope Beyond Depression; Healing Past Hurts; Forgiveness and Your Health - Part 1; Forgiveness and Your Health - Part 2; Healthy Relationships Behind Closed Doors; Living the Abundant Life: God's Healing Way; The New You.
Ellen G. White Speaks about the Mind
"Disease is sometimes produced, and is often greatly aggravated, by the imagination. Many are lifelong invalids who might be well if they only thought so. Many imagine that every slight exposure will cause illness, and the evil effect is produced because it is expected. Many die from disease the cause of which is wholly imaginary" (Ministry of Healing, p. 241).
