Friday: 7pm-9pm Saturday: 9am – 12pm Sunday: 9:15am & 10:15am
Speaker: Dr. Joe Brumfield
The struggle is real: Half of all adults in the U.S. will develop mental illness in their lifetime.
We are excited to announce an upcoming seminar for both church members and the community at large. This seminar will:
· Address head-on the mental health issue in our community and provide awareness around the fact that so many people in our communities, churches, friends, and families are dealing with, or will eventually experience depression, anxiety, or other ongoing mental struggles.
· Provide help and hope to those suffering and how we can be a voice of hope and direction
· Provide help and hope to those who are trying to help loved ones but don’t know how
It’s time to break the silence about this and learn about depression, anxiety, and other ongoing “invisible” struggles so that we can recognize and offer hope and support to those around us who need it. No one gets better alone. No family should walk through a mental health crisis alone. We all need a support system of family, friends, mental health professionals, support groups, and a faith community in challenging times.
