Maybe it would do us all some good to honestly talk about it. To remove any stigma, any embarrassment, any “faking fine,” and as a family open up some life-giving dialogue and invite God to meet us there. To help you on this journey our team has collected some resources to point you towards your next step.

MENTAL HEALTH panel discussion
Mental health issues impact not just the individual but their family and friends as well. When someone we love is struggling, we often don’t know how to respond or support them, and we don’t know how to effectively care for ourselves to make sure that we remain healthy. Join us as we hear from a panel of experts to learn how to best care for our loved ones and ourselves.

God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. So we will not fear when earthquakes come and the mountains crumble into the sea. Let the oceans roar and foam. Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge! Be still and know that I am God! Psalm 46:1-3, 10(NLT)
I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair,
out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. He has given me a new song to sing,
a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the Lord. Psalm 40:1-3(NLT)
Be still and know the TRUTH…that He is your refuge, your strength, your healer, your friend, your Father, your Maker, the lover of your Soul, and the lifter of your head.
I lift up my eyes to the mountains, where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2(NIV)
