We seek to support and encourage all those whose lives are affected by issues of mental health. Our mission is to be educators about mental health and a clearinghouse for information. We seek to connect people with one another and with resources through identifying and publicizing relevant information and events throughout the Diocese.
We have a presence at Diocesan Convention, and we meet quarterly.
If you are in urgent need of assistance please call a State Mental Health Crisis Line in your county. A full list can be found here: State Mental Health Crisis Lines.
For more information about the Mental Health Task Force, please contact us.
We would love to hear your story.
In 2017 we plan to offer several more Crisis Intervention Trainings in different parts of the diocese. Please let us know if you would be interested in hosting this event. Our training in Nov 2016 received very positive reviews.
