Current research indicates that many people with mental health conditions would like to be more involved with the local congregations of their choice, and the Temple Collaborative on Community Inclusion has recently re-issued Helping People Connect to provide resources to peer specialists who want to help the people with whom they work benefit from the faith and the fellowship that religious and spiritual groups can provide. Many people with mental health conditions are reluctant to re-connect with religious groups, and peer specialists are often reluctant themselves to address these issues: Helping People to Connect reviews these issues, offers recommendations, and provides resources to help peer specialists assist people with this aspect of their recovery journey.
