Church Society Podcast: Ministry and Mental Health

Posted by Ros Clarke, 30 Apr 2018

In this week's episode Ros Clarke talks to Mark Meynell about mental health, ministry and his new book.

This week’s podcast is slightly longer than usual, but features a hugely important discussion about mental health, brokenness in ministry, being gospel communities where secrets are not hidden, and much more. I urge you to find the time to listen, whether you are in ministry or not, and whether you have personal experience of mental health problems or not.

Books mentioned in the podcast include:
Dietrich Bonhoeffer: Life Together
William Styron: Darkness Visible
Mark Meynell: A Wilderness of Mirrors
Mark Meynell: When Darkness Seems My Closest Friend
