Spirituality and mental illness

HARTFORD — The Spiritual Life Center will host Spirituality and Mental Illness: Balance, Boundaries, and Being on March 26 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

According to a press release, spirituality and mental health are deeply connected often mutually  enhancing, sometimes mutually obstructing.  In cases where one’s mental health is compromised in some way—for example, by depression, alcoholism or PTSD—we must determine how far we are able to go in  spiritual direction, what is beyond our capacity, where we might refer a directee, or with whom we might consult to discern a way that will be    genuinely helpful for the one we are working with .  We do well to remember that balance, clear boundaries and just being authentically   present are  important, but may not be enough.  Join us for a day of facilitated reflection and group discussions focused on the issues you may have experienced with Directees.

The day-long workshop will be held at Holy Family, 303 Tunxis Road in West Hartford. Suggested price is between $65 to $75 and includes lunch.
