Faith Leaders Role as Shepherds through a Mental Health Crisis

November 9, 2021 - 8:30-11 a.m. - Zoom

Last year marked the first in what we hope will be many meetings between faith leaders of all backgrounds, roles, and creeds to come together and discuss mental health. We recognize the role that faith leaders often have as first responders to a mental health crisis. This conference aims to support these leaders in fostering well-being in their communities by equipping them with the knowledge, tools, and local support they need to achieve this goal. It is as a community that we rise to meet the mental health challenges the pandemic has created. For in both faith and healing, we need never be alone.
