Mental Health Recovery

When we become wounded physically, we naturally recognize the wisdom and necessity of immediately seeking proper medical treatment and rehabilitation to ensure that we can experience complete healing and recovery. When it comes to dealing with emotional and mental wounds, however, we are often unsure of where to turn to find the healing and recovery we need.

With the RU Recovery Program, we recognize that we all struggle to process experiences of grief, loss, stress, trauma, abuse, rejection or betrayal.

Not knowing how to deal with the pain we experience, our mental and emotional health can suffer, and as we seek out various methods to numb or cope with the pain our struggles get worse, not better.

Thus as much as we are able, we want to help you get connected with all the resources you may need, so that you may not only experience true emotional healing and recovery, but learn skills to maintain your own mental health and wellness:
  • As director, I have been trained in Mental Health First Aid, and while neither a counselor nor a psychologist, I can help you get connected with the various mental health resources available in our community and online;
  • As a chapter, we provide a support group for you as you try to work through the struggles you may have;
  • The RU recovery program itself has various resources that are invaluable in promoting good mental health, some of which are listed below;
  •  Ultimately, we want to help you develop a dynamic, personal relationship with the God who heals the brokenhearted.

Shame Meets Grace

By Johnny Wildt and Benjamin Burks

Shame is often from a deep cut inside of us that drives us to hide. We “feed” it by dwelling on perceptions and lies…which are straight from the devil, the accuser and deceiver! Instead, we need to “feed” our souls with truth from God’s Word. Our spiritual food choices (that on what we choose to meditate) alter our inner peace and determine whether our shame will drive us farther away from God as we try to hide the pain or closer to Him so He can cover it with His grace. It is our prayer that your shame will meet His grace… today.
