Fiat Program on Faith and Mental Health

Equipping the Church to Respond to the Mental Health Crisis

As a body is one though it has many parts, and all the parts of the body, though many, are one body, so also Christ. If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it; if one part is honored, all the parts share its joy. 
1 Corinthians 12:12,26

Situated at the McGrath Institute for Church Life at the University of Notre Dame, the Fiat Program on Faith and Mental Health supports the Church in responding to today’s mental health crisis through research, service, and teaching.

The Fiat Program strengthens the capacity of the local Church through a process of leadership formation. Beginning with educating Church ministers, both lay and ordained, the Fiat Program supports leaders in translating the knowledge and skills they develop to their respective dioceses, parishes, and schools. The program helps leaders envision how to promote understanding and care for those with mental illness across the broader Church community. Impact evaluation and interdisciplinary research inform and strengthen Fiat's formation offerings.
