Mental illness and substance use disorder are conditions that affect a person’s thinking, feelings, and/or mood. We have compiled resources to help your congregation fight stigma, provide support, educate the public, and be an advocate, and ally for people with mental illness and their families.
We encourage you to use these mental health resources in your congregation. These downloadable resources include sermon prompts, web links with many resources, litanies, and links to articles, books, and memoirs that can enhance awareness and understanding.
Oesterlen helps children, young adults, adults, and families understand the impact these conditions can have on your day-to-day life and your ability to relate and connect with others. Please remember you are not alone.
