This course aims to mobilize Christian communities to recognize and adopt the unique role of the Church in providing support for all who struggle with mental health challenges. The course will cover some basic psychology of adaptive and maladaptive behaviors that are particularly relevant to mental health care. Throughout the course, learners will explore a few practical ways in achieving and sustaining effective connections within interpersonal and community contexts.
Dr Hera Lukman is a registered Chartered Health Psychologist with the British Psychological Society. For the past 20 years, Hera has taught undergraduate and postgraduate Psychology at several Universities in the UK and Malaysia. She is currently working with various communities, particularly those within the education and faith-based institutions, to improve mental health literacy. Hera’s short-term goal is to develop informed communities of educators, faith leaders, peers and family members who understand their role in promoting mental health and who proactively provide effective mental health care to those struggling with mental health problems. In time, she hopes that such effort can help reduce the effects of stigma and misconceptions associated with mental distress and/or mental disorders. Her ultimate goal is to improve the quality of life for individuals living with mental health challenges.
