December 2018 Monthly FaithNet Conference Call
Faith communities provide an extra valuable source of support and care for those who struggle with mental health and mental illnesses. While the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is the largest organization that works hard to educate, raise awareness, and advocate systemic changes, there’s much more work to be done. There’s also much needed involvement with churches, faith communities, religious organizations.
There’s a monthly FaithNet conference call that I joined last month (thanks to David Dicken). They meet monthly to encourage one another and to share resources and referrals. On that call, I confirmed that all are welcomed to join, so this is your invite!
The time is the next call is this Friday, December 28, 2018 6:00PM Pacific Time (US and Canada). The conference call goes for about an hour using the Zoom platform.
Please let the organizer know if you plan on attending. Please RSVP by email to Paul Lu at [email protected] so he can send you in the meeting dial-in info.
What is NAMI FaithNet?
NAMI FaithNet is an information exchange network of NAMI members, friends, clergy and congregations of all faith traditions who wish to create more welcoming and supportive faith communities for persons and families touched by serious mental illness. NAMI FaithNet also encourages the role of faith in recovery for those for whom faith is a key component of their experience.
