Putting People First: The First Steps for Addressing Mental Illness in Faith Communities
July 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The first steps for a faith community in addressing mental illness are reflected in the first two principles of the Compassion in Action Guide — affirming the inherent dignity of each person and acknowledging mental illness as an illness. This webinar will highlight leaders who embody these principles in their work with faith communities. They will describe how their efforts are respectively building a sense of belonging for individuals with mental illness in faith communities and helping faith communities take mental illness seriously.
