On World Mental Health Day (October 10), Spiritual First Aid will join forces with Hope Made Strong and Biola’s Rosemead School of Psychology to present the Church Mental Health Summit. The free online summit for church leaders is a one-day event that will be available on-demand Monday, October 10th from 7:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. ET. Featured speakers include such prominent industry leaders in faith and mental health as Dr. Anita Phillips, John Townsend, Kay Warren, Danielle Strickland, Dr. Victor Counted, J.R. Briggs, and many more.

With the increase in mental health issues and the fact that people are more comfortable going to their church for support rather than to medical professionals, there is a greater need for ministry leaders to be equipped to support mental health needs.

By attending the Church Mental Health Summit, participants will be equipped with practical tools, engage with Biblically-based resources, and learn research-developed strategies to support mental health.

Upon registering, summit-goers will receive access to a password-protected website with sessions that can be viewed on October 10th. For those who wish to view sessions after the event for staff training and volunteer onboarding, a $59 All-Access pass (until August 31st; cost is $79 after 8/31) is required. Purchasing an all-access pass gives lifetime access to all the summit videos.

Additional information and registration for the event are available at ChurchMentalHealthSummit.com.
