Welcome to Shattering Stigma with Stories: Mental Health & Faith Communities, a powerful one-day conference designed to provide a deeper understanding of life with mental illness, as well as increased confidence in attendees’ abilities to respond compassionately and effectively to those who live with mental illness and their families or friends.

The next Shattering Stigma with Stories mental health conferences are coming soon!

Wouldn’t it be great if all of us, everyone in our faith communities—churches, synagogues, wherever we gather—were comfortable talking about mental health, and walking alongside those with mental illness? If we could speak as openly with those around us in the pews about depression, or bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia as we do about cancer or diabetes?

That’s the future I envisioned when I began Shattering Stigma, and it’s a future you can help create.

So register for one of our upcoming events, stay connected to read some amazing stories on the blog, and help start shattering stigma today!

Connect with real hope
