The Gathering on Mental Health and the Church

You are invited to The Gathering on Mental Health and the Church, a one-day event designed to encourage individuals living with mental illness, educate family members, and equip church leaders to provide effective and compassionate care to any faced with the challenges of mental illness.

I have a lot of friends who experience mental health issues who have been “turned off” of Christianity, Church, God, and organized religion in general. A lot of that has to do with the fact that when people with varying kinds of mental health issues are undiagnosed and untreated or misdiagnosed and treated incorrectly, we make choices and act out in ways which are considered willfully sinful and have been ostracized, criticized, rejected, and told that we are lacking because if we had faith and if we really loved God and Jesus, we would be different.

If you are a Christian and/or if you have experienced mental health issues which caused Christians to be hurtful to you and give you a distorted representation of the character and nature of God, this could be one of the most important events to attend and conversations to have.
