It is a tough one when faith + MI collide, my husband had psychotic depression as part of his BPii crisis which involved a religious delusion, the probable difference in his situation was that his delusion was causing him distress. The person in our faith he saw whilst being kind had no understanding whatsoever of psychiatric issues. Some faiths do now provide clergy on training in relation to this, however most of this is more "first aid" or recognising MI and not the skills required to treat serious conditions. "Lack of insight" is the medical term for when patients do not believe they have a problem.
Little is known about many neurological/psychiatric disorders including traumatic brain injury. The main focus of present treatment is symptomatic relief.
