Mental Health Awareness Week October 6 to 12


For Mental Health Awareness Week (Oct 6-12) we encourage your church to develop greater awareness of the one in five people among us who have mental health issues and to consider ways to minister with them.

These training videos from Mental Health and Chaplaincy help faith communities and clergy care for and support Veterans and persons with emotional and mental health struggles. Discussion questions embedded in the videos encourage conversation within small groups of community members.

They are ideal for religious education classes, book clubs, study or prayer groups, community meetings, Veterans' gatherings, and the like.
