Orthodox Christian Spirituality and Mental Health

On 27 October 2021, the Orthodox Christian Studies Center of Fordham University, New York, held an interesting seminar, “Orthodox Christian Spirituality and Mental Health.”

Abstract: Our current moment has been described as a “mental health crisis” that has impacted more young adults than previously recorded. This panel of experts discusses the intersection of religion and mental health, with a particular focus on Orthodox Christian spirituality as a resource for mental health. What is Orthodox Christian spirituality? How can it be a resource for confronting mental health challenges provoked by social media, Covid-19, hyper-individualist culture, and even religion itself?
