Event description
A free mental health training offered to professional and lay faith community leaders by NAMI Central Middlesex.

About this Event

Because religion and spirituality often play a vital role in healing, it’s not uncommon for families and individuals experiencing mental health issues to turn to a faith leader first for help. Yet faith leaders, staff and key outreach volunteers are often lacking the information, education and resources to be the “bridge to hope” needed as people navigate serious, sometimes life-threatening, mental health issues.

If your community is ready to build bridges to hope for families and individuals living with mental illness, this is a perfect introductory 3-hour training, which features:

An informative overview of prevalent mental health myths and common symptoms of mental health disorders

First steps to comprehensive Action plans for building “bridges to hope” with your faith community

A tool kit of community mental health resources

Who should attend?

Rabbis, imams, clergy, priests, pastors, deacons, elders, and lay leaders.

Please use this no-cost ticketing system to register. We look forward to seeing you!
