Today's coffee break episode deals with a listener question regarding how the Body of Christ can support people with mental health and addiction struggles. We do a deep-dive into some really hard questions like:

- what does it look like to give prayer and emotional support to someone struggling with mental health or addiction issues?

- is there a time when prayer isn't enough?

- does it mean that prayer doesn't work if someone continues to struggle with addiction or mental illness despite prayer and petition?

- how do you know when it's time to seek out counseling or medication?

- is it "unspiritual" to take medication for mental illness or addiction?
