About the Course

Who should participate in this course?

The Sanctuary Course is a study guide for small groups, designed to raise awareness and start conversations in local churches regarding mental health. Your group might include:  

  • People with questions about mental health  
  • Mental health professionals with a wealth of knowledge to share  
  • Leaders who want to engage their community in mental health conversations  
  • People supporting loved ones with mental health problems  
  • People living with mental health problems  

How does it work?

The Sanctuary Course is an eight-week study guide for small groups. Each week participants will gather together, read through the content out loud or listen to it on audiobook, watch a film, and engage in conversation, reflection, and prayer.  

What does it cover?

Over the course of the eight weeks, participants will explore topics such as:  

  • Understanding mental health and illness  
  • Challenging stigma  
  • The recovery journey  
  • Companionship  
  • Self-care  
  • The role of community in mental health recovery  

Each topic is explored from a psychological, social, and theological perspective. Additionally, each session is accompanied by a compelling film featuring the story of an individual who has journeyed through mental health challenges as a person of faith.
