Mental Health Ministry

In the United States, almost half of adults will experience a mental illness during their lifetime. When families are struggling with mental health conditions the first place they call is the church, yet churches are often lacking the information and resources needed to help. Gethsemane Austin wants to change that.

Thanks to a grant from the ELCA, Gethsemane has launched a Mental Health Ministry Plan to include twelve workshops covering a variety of mental health topics for both adults and children as well as two mental health training conferences for faith leaders with a goal of promoting healthy living in spirit, mind and body.
