Facts about mental health issues, ideas for implementing awareness, reducing stigma, and improved access to resources are all necessary for a successful conference.  If you have questions, call Amy Thompson at 937-372-7177.

Friday, October 13, 2023 - Pastoral & Ministerial Dinner & Session

Mental Health and the Church...sometimes those two subjects together are met with closed doors. Depression, anxiety, self-harm, addiction, or suicidal thoughts are not often topics that Christians want to admit or address. Yet, we cannot ignore the growing problem within society, our churches, friends and family, or even within ourselves. As the hands and feet of Christ, we are to minister to one another in every struggle whether physical or emotional. Let’s change the way we view mental health, educate & equip ourselves with the proper keys of understanding, and open the doors to honest, biblical discussion where True Hope is found. If you are interested in being a part of this discussion, please let us know at the checkbox at the end of this form.


 

If you know of other contacts, vendors, or speakers that might be interested in being a part, please forward this application to them.
