New for 2019-

In each in person meeting on even months, we will highlight  a different faith tradition's work to promote mental health awareness and reduce stigma, as well as discuss a mental health topic of interest to faith communities. 

We will also continue our Spotlight and Share on our conference call meetings on odd months, where at the beginning of our bi monthly conference call will highlight one of the IMHC participating organizations, allowing us to gain in-depth knowledge of how the organization can be a resource. The end of the call will allow for participants to share activities related to faith communities and mental health.

Everyone is welcome at any of our meetings!
