Early morning on June 4, 17 persons from our Nativity Community attended the Mental Health Connect fundraiser breakfast at Mt Olivet Lutheran Church. The program involved communication about the important work being done by Mental Health Connect along with individuals sharing their challenges when faced with personal mental illness and mental illness of family members.
Nativity Lutheran Church joined the Mental Health Connect collaboration of 12 faith-based organizations in late 2018. The mission of Mental Health Connect is to:
- Get persons in need to the right resources in an efficient manner
- Reduce the stigma of mental illness through education and awareness
