What is CAMI?
CAMI stands for Christians Afflicted with Mental Illness. CAMI is an organization within Heartfelt Counseling Ministries. Mental Illness is a disease that begs for community and it is often more subtle and much more prevalent than we imagine
One of our greatest achievements has been to write our own CAMI Material for Mental Health Support Groups. This includes Leader/Starter Guides with all the instructions on how to start, lead and maintain these groups as well as the Student Guides.
CAMI Guide - These provocative and interesting manuals pose questions relating to the issues so relevant to those who live with these diseases. Each lesson has sections entitled Key Verse, Theme of the Week, Talking Points and The Crux of the Matter. There are six lessons in each workbook with approximately eight questions each. The Leader’s Guide has an additional section with all the questions answered and helps to lead the discussion.
The subjects for the lessons in the first series are as follows:
The Providence of God and Mental Illness
Breaking the Stigma of Mental Illness
Elijah, a Depressed Man
The Lethality of Mental Illness
The Consumer and Links to Help
Shepherding the mentally ill
