Event Details

Mental health is calling out for the church’s attention with national estimates that one in four people suffer from a mental illness. This complex problem often intersects with issues of access to healthcare, poverty and justice that impact families, congregations, and communities. 

As churches are involved in ministries that seek to promote well-being, this includes people who are living with mental illness and their families. How are we to be present with them? What is a faithful response? What role does the church have in promoting mental health as well as responding to mental illness?
This interdisciplinary conference will explore how healthcare professionals and congregations can collaborate in responding faithfully to the challenge of mental illness, considering what can be done together that neither can do alone.

Continuing Education

There is a $10 continuing education fee for Social Workers , Professional Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists , Psychologist and Nursing Home administrators. 

Please Note: The continuing education fee for Nurses and Chaplains is covered by North Park University. More information will be available the day of the conference.

All continuing education participants should purchase a continuing education ticket, in addition to the standard registration, prior to the event.
