On this episode of MercyTalk, we talk about mental health and the Church with Dr. Brooke Keels and a new guest to MercyTalk, Marshall Gallagher. Marshall is a local pastor and serves as Mercy’s Church Strategy Advisor. Why do conversations around mental health and psychology seem to be so tricky in the Church? Marshall helps us to understand how we got here and what we can do to normalize these conversations.
