Mental Health Awareness Month Resources

This month we’re talking about Mental Health Awareness. We first begin talking about it when we wrestled in April with some of the challenges that we face as a nation – one primary one is loneliness and isolation which have been declared an epidemic by the surgeon general of the United States.   This has been in the news this week.  You can learn more – thinking even about how this might be an opportunity for us to minister to our neighbors and each other as we claim to be a church that is Safe, Open, and Real.
