Bridges to Hope | Saturday, April 28 | 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | Wesley United Methodist
Bridges to Hope is a 3-hour interfaith mental health introductory training developed by the local affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. The introductory training includes
- An informative overview of prevalent mental health myths and common symptoms of mental health disorders
- Simple ideas for building “bridges to hope” for your faith community
- A tool kit of community mental health resources
- A tool for developing an action plan to address the needs in your community and optional post-training support
The team presenting the training includes Ricky Allen, a young man living with schizophrenia, who will share his story and how his faith community has supported his recovery.
