Mental Health Team

Come to me, all who are struggling hard and carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Put on my yoke, and learn from me. I’m gentle and humble. And you will find rest for yourselves. My yoke is easy to bear and my burden is light.

Matthew 11:29

UPCOMING EVENT

Leave no Veteran Behind

Panel on Veterans’ Mental Health

Saturday May 5, 3-4:30p, Fellowship Hall

Inspired by a recent tragic event at our church, The Social Justice team invites you to a community conversation on veterans’ mental health. A panel of veterans, mental service providers, and organizations will discuss the mental and emotional toll of military service, and proved suggestions for supporting veterans. While veterans are welcome, our goal is to educate families, friends, and/or neighbors of veterans. More info: email [email protected]

OUR WORK

The Mental Health Team is under the umbrella of Manchester UMC’s Social Justice Ministry. As a church, we recognize that persons with mental illness and their families have a right to be treated with respect and obtain care appropriate to their condition.

If you are passionate about changing perspectives, systems, and institutions so that individual persons can flourish, join our Mental Health! Our work starts here, but extends beyond our walls to make our world a better place. To get involved, please contact Social Justice Coordinator, Nicki Reinhardt-Swierk.
