Hope and Mental Health–Hamilton Realities


Come, share and engage in stories of success: as followers of Christ and as churches, what is working well in supporting people who deal with mental health issues,? What creative solutions would help to provide support even more effectively? We will follow the thread of the dialogue wherever it goes, perhaps dealing with a marriage breakdown, or a psychotic episode in church on a Sunday morning, teens who may be suicidal or engaging in self-harm, understanding service gaps and partnering with Hamilton mental health services, insights into stigma and mental illness through the lens of faith.

Curators: Jennifer Bowen and Mark Vander Vennen from the Shalem Mental Health Network

Offered: Morning 10:15-11:15 AM and 11:30AM-12:30
