Visual Radio Interview Anxiety Church Mental health

Shez, 17th Dec 2019

Barna and World Vision did a study of 15,000 18-35-year-olds, assessing if going to church has a positive effect on their mental health.

The study found that those who are engaged with the church are more likely to say they are optimistic about the future, secure in who they are, able to accomplish their goals, and have someone that believes in them.

The report also found the same group was less likely to say they are lonely or isolated and anxious or uncertain about the future compared to those without faith.

Shez spoke to Tim Pilkington, World Vision UK CEO, about the findings, and possible explanations of this.
