Introducing Faith on the CouchOur lives do not exist in a vacuum. If they did, I suppose life might be a bit easier.

Instead, we have intricate connections — with our family, friends, and our faith. These are rarely simple connections, but are instead informed and influenced by years of experience, learning, understanding, and interactions.

Nowhere is that connection more complex than our relationship with our faith and beliefs. Whether you were raised in a Catholic household (as I was), a Muslim household, or a Jewish one, our relationship with our faith is often complicated and unclear.

That’s why I’m honored to have Dr. Greg Popcak blogging for us here at our newest blog, Faith on the Couch. The new blog will be exploring these relationships with our faith and beliefs, and helping us to better understand them. Religion is something that is so important to so many people’s lives, and perhaps not surprising, important in their recovery. When grappling with a mental health issue, relying on our faith is one of the rocks that can provide us with support when nothing else seems solid.

You can learn more by visiting the blog today. Please give him a warm Psych Central welcome over on the blog now, Faith on the Couch!
