The Covid-19 pandemic has had a big impact on mental health. A recent KFF poll found that 4 in 10 adults reported some anxiety or depression during the pandemic... and more than half of teens did. Those feelings are not just among people in the world, people in our churches are suffering too. Author Amy Simpson talks with Ed Stetzer about mental illness and the church's mission to help people suffering from it with whole hearts and whole souls.
