Mental Health

For those in our midst who deal with persistent mental illness, having a job to go to, an apartment of their own, or a place to go just to hang out means a sense of belonging and a step toward independence. To those who love and care for them, it means knowing that they are not alone.

In May 2015, a Mental Health Task Force was formed at Westmisnter to look at how we, as a community of faith, can best serve those whose lives are impacted by mental illness. The task forces aims to prepare a variety of classes, presentations, resources and discussion groups around this topic.
