Did you know that mental illness affects us all? More than 1 in 5 Americans suffer from this challenge every year. That means that most of us are touched by it either directly or indirectly.
Is it you…or someone you love? When this affects you or a family member, you can feel sad, confused, shameful or stigmatized. How can we learn to struggle well with this real challenge in a biblical way and find grace and hope through the process?
We believe the church has a central role to play in the area of mental health. Together we can take steps to educate and equip the body of Christ and help eradicate the stigma of mental illness.
Let’s start working together.
The Mental Health Family Grace Group is hosting a 4-week course called L.E.A.P. This is a communication technique developed by Dr. Xavier Amador, a world-renowned psychologist, to help families create better communication and stronger partnership with a loved one struggling with a mental illness. Michele Brown, Education Coordinator for NAMI Charlotte will facilitate. Join us Wednesday evenings in October.
