Whether you are a pastor that has just realized the need for your church to do more with mental health in your community, a Christian counselor that wants to better integrate within your church but outside of a counseling setting, or a congregation member that wants to step up and provide resources to those who are hurting, we all need a little training. The Church Mental Health Summit as the perfect online conference that brings together ministry leaders and practitioners to strengthen your leadership and equip you to serve those in community with confidence.
The event is free on October 10, World Mental Health Day with over 50 speakers across the globe to provide training and resources for you. If you are interested in signing up, you can do so with our affiliate link here. It’s free if you watch it on October 10 or with their all-year pass if you need to watch it later. Below is Laura Howe’s explanation of the event.
Ways to use this?
- Take some time for self-care to realize you are not the only one doing this.
- Learn new ideas and allow your inspiration to thrive as you listen to the different thought leaders.
- Get your church staff or volunteers together to touch on specific topics like pornography, anxiety, eating disorders, wellness, sabbath, sleep, and making space for mental health.
Last year, we shared our video of what we presented on in 2020 as part of the promotional for that year’s summit and next week, we will share the presentation we did in 2021. You can also see all of the resources we references for our 2020 presentation on youth ministry, mental health, and substance misuse here.
We hope to see you there!
