Faith & Understanding Lecture Series
Our “Faith and Understanding” lecture series is back beginning Monday, January 7th at 7:00 pm. On the first Monday evening of each month, January through May 2019, we will explore a different topic. There will be no event in March.
The first topic is: “Understanding Mental Health in our Community.” We have invited our local chapter of the National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI) to give us an overview of some of the key topics and issues facing our community in regards to mental health. The presentation will feature a panel of folks with varying ties to the mental health community who will share their insights and help us begin a conversation together. We will be discussing brain function and dysfunction, some statistics on mental health in our community and a brief description of NAMI resources for finding help, pamphlets on specific illnesses and outreach materials. The majority of the time will be reserved for open discussion on mental health issues. Come learn and share about this important topic in a welcoming and open environment.
