Individuals and caregivers facing a diagnosis of serious mental illness (SMI) can be overwhelmed. In fact, the likelihood that the loved one will not recover previous levels of stability can lead to debilitating despair for all involved. Spiritual and religious support can provide an alternative pathway to understanding, managing, and achieving a level of stability toward a “new normal” for those with mental illness and their loved ones. Incorporating spirituality and religious belief into this form of recovery and renewal can lead to an increased opportunity for growth, fulfillment, and meaning for the individuals, their loved ones, and even the mental health professionals involved in their care.
