A COMPARISON OF MENTAL HEALTH AND ACUTE HOSPITAL CHAPLAINCY
Keywords:Chaplaincy, acute, healing, mental health, suffering, theology
Starting with a personal account of his own experience as a Hospital Chaplain, working in both the psychiatric and acute sectors of health care, Iain Macritchie makes observations, and draws some comparisons between these two areas of Chaplaincy. Healthcare Chaplaincy, in general, is seen as a dialogue between faith and suffering. The differences between acute and mental health Chaplaincy are highlighted by examining the nature of the theology and of the suffering in either case.
