Mental Health

Every day, millions of individuals are hurting. So many people are silently fighting an inner battle. Yet, mental health is in the headlines daily. And as a church, we need to be in the conversation. Jesus cared for many who struggled with mental health, and His example of caring, supporting, and healing is one we can and should follow.

Social Anxiety


Everyone will experience sadness in life, but not everyone will go through depression. Depression is not a choice. Yes, sometimes, choices made could lead someone down that path. But, many times, depression can result from things out of someone’s control, and sometimes, it seems like depression happens for no reason. In the message linked below, Care Pastor Amy Sargent (LMFT and M.Th.) shares her journey of depression and how the not-far-off HOPE that exists can be experienced through Jesus and the Holy Spirit living in us.

Anxiety. It’s everywhere and in everything. Triggers. Fear. Worry. Panic. Big and small. When anxiety hits, our ability to “think” gets lost and replaced with a need to act. Pastor John Orozco asks and answers the question, "Where is Jesus in all of this?" in the message linked below.

We all can struggle with co-dependency from time to time. For many of us, though, it is debilitating. In the message linked below, Chris Stockhaus talks about the habits, the lies, the practical steps, and the truth needed to find the healthy love of self that Jesus wants for us. 

Practical Steps for Combatting Co-Dependent Tendencies
  1. Practice saying the word no.
  2. When you start to think of what others need, stop and consider what you need first.
  3. Consistently acknowledge that you’re not responsible for fixing anyone; they have to do that themselves.
  4. You can’t make another person feel a certain way – and they can’t make you feel a certain way- you are in charge of your own emotions.
  5. Develop and embrace your own personality. Take up hobbies and find things you enjoy doing. Find and meet your own expectations, not other people’s expectations.
  6. Try not to judge others, and try not to think others are judging you.
Co-Dependency Groups

In addition to practical tips, we recommend you join a co-dependency anonymous group. We have some groups at Cornerstone Fellowship, or there may be a great co-dependency group outside of CF but in your community. We also recommend counseling or therapy. There are professionals in your area who are trained to help you develop a Gospel-centered healthy view of self that will help you combat your co-dependent tendencies.

Sometimes, co-dependency can be viewed as an addiction to relationships.

Grief is complicated. Unresolved grief can affect every area of our lives, from our mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. In the message linked below, Pastor Diane Rutledge dissects the complexity of working in and through personal grief, supporting someone going through grief, and how Jesus' words and actions can move someone toward hope, health, and healing.

Helpful Ways to Process Grief
  • Support Groups - Attending a support group at a local church or hospice facility. Many support groups today offer virtual groups.
  • Sleep and Self-care - It may be difficult to find healthy routines as you are grieving, but taking time to care for yourself and get rest is important. What is something you can do that you enjoy? Ex. Going for walks, taking time off from work, listening to music, reading a book, cooking a meal, going out for coffee, taking a bath, or watching your favorite show. Take time to do things that give your heart and mind rest but also things that you truly enjoy.
  • Say Goodbye - Perhaps you did not get a chance to say goodbye to your loved one. This experience can leave a void of unfinished business in your heart, soul, and mind. Here are a few examples of how you can take time to say goodbye:
    • Journaling and/or writing a letter to the one who passed.
    • Acknowledging the loss. Making a post on social media about the loss or writing an obituary can help acknowledge and process your loss.
    • Permission to move forward. After loss, grief is a healthy and normal emotion to have, but it can also become a companion that keeps us from moving forward (not forgetting) after our loss. Here are some ideas to help you remember and honor the memory of your loved one while also giving you permission to create new memories and a new routine in your life.
      • Find something that reminds you of them and place it somewhere visible in your home.
      • Light a candle in their place at significant holidays, anniversaries, and events.
      • Remember them often in your thoughts, and don’t be afraid to talk about them in conversations with others.

Addiction is complicated. Not only are the causes, results, and impacts of addiction challenging for an individual facing them, but the ripple effect of addiction also reaches beyond and deep into those surrounding that person. Pastor Steve Ingold and Care Pastor/licensed Therapist Amy Sargent talk about addiction and how Jesus’ words and actions can move someone toward hope, health, and healing in the message linked below.
