  • Is your faith community meeting the needs of your congregation and community who are experiencing depression, anxiety and other mental health diagnoses?
  • How will the current Covid-19 pandemic impact both those in your congregation and community with mental health needs and how will congregations respond to connect, support and create real communities of belonging for everyone?
  • What are the barriers to creating communities of belonging that include people with mental health challenges?
  • How can we support each other as a faith inclusion network as we search for creative ways to be more inclusive of those with mental illness in individual faith communities?
