Abstract

In mental illness, individuals may choose faith-based counseling as primary treatment, with medical care as a supportive adjunct. Biblical Framework Counseling (BFC) is based on belief of the Bible's sufficiency to address the root causes of mental disorders that are not otherwise physiologically caused. Clients address underlying spiritual issues while medical care and pharmacotherapy adherence are encouraged to support symptom relief. Consultation between patient, BFC counselor, and healthcare clinician is emphasized to optimize outcomes.
