The Gathering on Mental Health and the Church

mentalhealth1

 

From: Saddleback Church, Orange County: Studies show that one out of every four adults in America will be affected by mental illness at some point in their lives. The first place many go for help is to their priest or to their pastor because the heart of Jesus and the Church has always been for those who suffer.

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. Please join Pastor Rick and Kay Warren of Saddleback Church, Bishop Kevin Vann of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange, and NAMI-OC (National Alliance on Mental Illness-Orange County) and other faith and community leaders on Friday, March 28 for a hope-filled and inspiring gathering, as together we call the Church to action on behalf of those living with mental illness, equip lay and pastoral leadership, and stand side by side with those who suffer.
