Mental Health

    A group of CCIH members interested in mental health met at the CCIH 2019 Conference to discuss faith-based work in mental health. The group has begun gathering resources for this page. If your organization has resources related to Mental Health, please share them with Kathy Erb at kathy.erb (at)

    Crisis Care Training International

    Dr. Phyllis Kilbourn founded Crisis Care Training International (CCTI) after her experience in a number of countries as a missionary led her to believe that the local church’s participation in helping suffering children around the world was the answer to their overwhelming need. She founded CCTI (a CCIH member) in 2004 to focus on equipping the local and international church and parachurch organizations on trauma and crisis care. CCTI offers Healing and Hope for Children in Crisis, a flexible, multi-module curriculum for training caregivers working with children who have experienced trauma from crisis experiences such as physical, sexual or emotional abuse, abandonment and/or exploitation. Learn more about CCTI and the training and contact Amy Wilson at awilson (at) for more information.
