The Gathering on Mental Health and the Church

Research shows 1 in 5 children and 1 in 5 adults in America will be affected by mental illness in a given year. Although millions of people are impacted by mental illness - people often feel isolated and alone, unsure of where to turn for help and hope. On October 7-9, 2015 Saddleback Church is hosting The Gathering on Mental Health and the Church which will include pre-conference training seminars and two full days of educating, equipping, networking and empowering individuals living with mental health challenges, mental health professionals, church leaders, as well as family members and friends. Learn how you can start a mental health ministry in your church. Together we will commit to come alongside, support, learn from, and compassionately care for those living with mental illness. Join The Gathering today!
