We are currently in the early stages of planning the CViE National Conference 2019. A topical subject at present is that of Mental Health and we are considering making this the theme of the day this year.

To help us make the day as relevant and useful as possible, it would be great to hear your thoughts.

Which aspects of this topic are of interest to you? What are your top questions? Have you encountered mental health issues within the educational setting?

Given that Mental Health is such a big deal in the media and the world generally, and especially with children and in schools, this is a great topic to tackle.  But it is a huge one - and where to start?!  A balanced Christian perspective on mental health might be perhaps a logical place to start.  It will be interesting to see what anyone else suggests here, but there must be many views out there!

Well done CViE for tackling an often ignored topic. I am sure there are many differing opinions on what mental health is, and how it should be handled. 

This topic is so often brought up in the media, on social media and in schools that our teenagers need some input on this from a Christian perspective. 

Are there really more mental health problems these days? Or are we just more ready to share feelings and emotions? Does modern living cause it?

Big subject. Difficult subject.

A number of places to visit???

The link between the lawless society, family breakdown etc is one seldom acknowledged.

The use of the label to excuse bad behaviour is perhaps used too easily.

The spritual nature of mental illness.

The opportunities that ministering in this field gives us, and its difficulties.

Sympathy..We are all but a few shorts steps away from this.

I think from a Christian perspective, particularly an Evangelical one, can charismatic teaching on mental helath and "casting out demons" etc be addressed?
