Mental health is a dimension of all our lives. People living with mental health issues are very often living on the margins of society. Public access to care for people with mental health issues is scarce. How can the church be a place of support for people who live with ongoing and chronic mental health concerns, especially for those who are living with homelessness or near homeless?

This will be an intersectional conversation as mental health, addictions, and poverty are often interwoven. How can we build a church where all are truly welcome as they are?

In our congregations we often to do not have intentional times to reflect together on mental health as part of our whole well-being. How can we change this and model a strong and caring approach? How can we support those in leadership with resources and dialogue?

The call of the Gospel and the Old Testament is to reach out to those in need. Jesus would have encountered and spoken with people living with mental health issues just as we do today. How can we draw from scripture to inform a healthy and holistic approach to responding to mental health issues and include people living with them more in our practice of community?

Within our congregations and our society we can reflect on models that are helpful for developing our healthy habits of spiritual practice around mental health.

In this course we will draw from scripture, scholarly articles, personal reflections, and other written materials, as well as art and poetry, to consider building a theology and practice in response to mental health today.
