The International Bipolar Foundation (IBPF) is out with another excellent webinar. This webinar will present a clinical, Biblical and personal perspective of psychiatric disorders.  The role of the church will be discussed as well as practical ways that members can minister to people who have a psychiatric disorder and promote their recovery.

IBPF webinars are always of the highest quality. Put this one on your calendar!

    Is is possible to send a copy to my web site as there is a time conflict with PDT for tuning in.

    Or is there a follow-up are alternate time I could tune in?

    Gratefully, Joan Krug
