Envisioning a Better Future for Those Living with Mental Illness and Their Families

Presented by Matthew S. Stanford, PhD, Chief Executive Officer, Hope and Healing Center & Institute The numbers are truly overwhelming. In the United States, one out of every five adults struggles with a mental disorder in a given year. The annual prevalence of mental illness in adolescents 13 to 17 years old is even greater. More disturbing is the fact that 60% of adults and 50% of children/adolescents diagnosed with a mental disorder receive no treatment. In this presentation Dr. Stanford will discuss the Christian church’s historical role in the care of those with mental illness and give an update on the Hope and Healing Center & Institute’s progress in increasing access to care in the greater Houston area.
