'Astonishing' Rise In Demand For Exorcisms Putting Mental Health At Risk

'Astonishing' rise in demand for exorcisms putting mental health at risk, report finds 

An "astonishing" rise in harmful Christian exorcisms is being partly driven by migrant communities, a think tank has warned. A report by Theos, a think tank focusing on religion, found that experts were concerned that the "booming industry" in exorcisms was putting Christians' mental health at risk. The report, which examines the relationship between Christianity and mental health, said: "Exorcisms are now a booming industry in the UK, with a number of interviewees noting the astonishing increase in demand – often, as one noted, in defiance of any actual rules or procedures put in place by any church."
