Mental Health 101: Identifying and responding to church members in distress
This workshop is developed for ministry leaders to increase awareness and understanding of mental illness and mental health problems, thus increase their confidence in supporting church members.
What is mental health and mental illness? How common is mental illness in the Church? What are some “Dos” and “Don’ts” of interacting with a person with a mental illness in everyday life?
During this interactive workshop, participants will be led through topics of current mental health statistics, types of mental illnesses, and how to approach and care for those with mental illness in their ministry settings.
This workshop is usually limited to 12 spaces due to the hands-on activities involved.
