Do not fear; for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.” Isa. 43:1

Isaiah reminds us to live not in fear, but the personal, restoring and renewing relationship with the loving presence of God.

Do not fear; for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.” Isa. 43:1

Affirming this faith, we will meet together to address a part of our experience, which is sometimes painful and, at the same time, often leads to a deeper appreciation of the gift that we call life.

While we know that one out of four people is directly affected by mental health challenges, we also know that we can be a resource helping individuals and families respond to these challenges.

At this conference, we will:

•Hear stories by persons who have been affected by mental health challenges

•Learn about mental disorders, suicide, and minority mental health

•Learn the steps to become a WISE (Welcoming, Inclusive, Supportive, and Engaged) Congregation for Mental Health

•Receive practical steps to start a mental health ministry

•Worship together, share, and meet new people with a common interest
