About This Site

Our interactive site is designed for clergy and people in local congregations to get a "snapshot" of:
  1. what to do when a person with mental illness or a family member comes for help or simply makes his or her presence known (see Pastoral Crisis Intervention),

  2. what activities and programs can be developed in congregations that are supportive of people with mental illness and/or their families (see Helping the Family),

  3. what agencies and organizations have helpful resources and referral information (see Resources).
Our site is intended for clergy, interested laity, people with mental illness and their families, friends and supporters and mental health professionals interested in working with the faith community.
