    Profound Mental Retardation: This category has I.Q. less than 25 i.e., mental age of a 3 year old child. It represents 1% of the mentally retarded people. They are completely incapable of looking after themselves. Thus, they require complete hospitalization, immense attention and personal care. They even cannot attend to their basic physical needs. Unlike many people, those with mental illness can see "the depths and heights of humanity, the soaring glory of the possible and the deep melancholy of life. And that is a gift," Hermes says. She and others in Catholic mental health advocacy hope the church continues to get even better at finding, as Hermes says, the "beautiful in the brokenness.".

Mental retardation affects numerous families in our congregations. It is estimated that in a church ofas many as 18 families include a mentally retarded person.

Mentally challenged adults need the support of a compassionate church to face their unique problems. To put their plight into perspective, we must make a distinction between.

(History of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, ) Temple ordinances for mentally retarded persons who are deceased, however, are performed on the same basis as they are for any deceased person—without consideration of mental retardation.

We never went to church, but we believe in Jesus Christ. My question is, since my son is incapable of believing because of his condition, how will God judge him. I worry about this.

I am convinced that God does not send the mentally challenged or mentally ill to hell because they cannot understand the gospel. If we in the community of people with intellectual disabilities, and family and friends, had stood up for “mentally retarded,” the “r-word” campaigns would have involved a very different message: “Don’t use retarded as an insult.

It hurts people who really are mentally retarded. There’s nothing wrong with being mentally retarded.”. Between andmore t people in twenty-nine states were sterilized, many of them unknowingly or against their will, while they were incarcerated in prisons or institutions for the mentally ill.

This may be the deaf, dumb, and blind, the severely mentally retarded, the unborn, those who die in infancy, or those in unconscious states. Along with being able to trust in the fact that God will act in accordance with His holy character, we can also have complete faith in the fact that those the Father draws to the Son will be saved.

The painting evokes a common question about the status of mentally handicapped people and their relationship to the Catholic Church.

Should mentally handicapped people be baptized. This question was of a subject of debate in the early Church. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, nearly 1-in-5 adults in the U.S. — million people — experience mental illness in a given year, and percent of adolescents age   Until that day, we are merely mouthing platitudes.

I was frightened, once, of disabled people. It wasn't until God broke my heart apart by presenting me with a magnificent, adorable, terribly weird, and mentally crippled child that I understood that, compared to the angels, we are all handicapped children, mentally crippled and mute.

The Church and the Mentally Retarded Person. Canadian Council of Churches, Toronto (Ontario).; Canadian Association for the Mentally Retarded, Toronto (Ontario). Directed to ministers and lay church leaders, the booklet describes the mentally retarded and discusses how the church can minister to them and to their families.

An appendix reviews. written by a chaplain in a public residential institution for mentally retarded persons, the book defines the role of the church in helping the mentally retarded and their families. the challenge to the church is presented. the discussion of the ministry to the family treats mental retardation as a family problem and the pastoral care of parents of retarded persons.

I need to say at the start, however, that I can find no Bible text telling us forthrightly that mentally disabled people who cannot confess Jesus Christ as Savior are "under God's salvation.".

We cannot make the church a museum of “bright, shiny” people or “catalog model” teenagers and call ourselves the same movement that flowed from the ministry of Jesus. Mark’s summaries of the Galilean ministry of Jesus make it clear that those we would call the mentally ill were there in large numbers.

The question I will answer in this article refers to mentally handicapped people. My question is about mentally handicapped people.

I serve two groups of mentally handicapped people, one of which involves working with mothers and their children who are mentally defective. Here are my questions: I heard that some churches teach that these people are demon-possessed. The mentally handicapped do not have a consciousness of power.

Because of this perhaps their capacity for love is more immediate, lively and developed than that of other men. They cannot be men of ambition and action in society and so develop a capacity for friendship rather than for efficiency. Unfortunately, when a person with MR/DD needs psychotherapy to treat the mental illness, it can be difficult to find a psychiatrist who is comfortable working with the patient.

There are relatively few studies focused on psychotherapeutic interventions in the mentally retarded (MR) patient. "Mental Health and the Church is an eminently readable and informative book on a topic the church has ignored for far too long.

Grcevich uses his expertise as a child psychiatrist to replace our misconceptions about mental illness and sin with truth.

He then provides clear explanations of how mental illnesses most commonly affect children's. I remember a few years ago, I went to this Baptist Church for about a year before I moved, and there was this mentally disabled person that would every once in a while come and visit.

He would come on his own too since he lived right down the street. He was of course, more than welcome and the people at the church genuinely cared for the guy.
