People with a mental illness usually isolate themselves Many of them have been hospitalized and institutionalized for years. They have been told what to do most of their lives. These persons do not trust people. They feel abandoned, abused with a lack of purpose in their lives. These special people need a friend to listen to them not tell them what to do or give them advice.
Our Friend-to-Friend ministry trains volunteers to be listeners not advice-givers. They are to be encouragers. These volunteers meet with them on a weekly basis. If you are living with a mental illness and needing such a friend, please contact us by email or phone as listed in our material. Also, we are in need of Christian volunteers to be listening ears and encouragers. Please contact us if you are interested or have further questions.
