Mental Health Session 2

Justin Bangert, MS, LMFT from The Psychology Clinic, Prairie du Sac and The Christion Center for Christian Counseling, Madison was our main presenter this past Tuesday night. Justin spoke with kindness, compassion and assurance about his interactions with those experiencing mental illness. He offered beautiful reflections and scripture readings that he has found to be helpful.

Sessions will continue for the next 3 Tuesday evenings, 6:30 PM – 8 PM in Room C in the church basement. We offer these nights to people suffering from mental illness, their families, or those who wish to learn more about this ongoing suffering in our community.

The following 3 nights will include:

¨ Ministry to People with Mental Illness and Their Families

¨ Spirituality and Mental Illness.

¨ How can we Minister to People With a Mental Illness and Their Families (our Information Fair tables)

There will also be opportunities for small group discussion for those interested and this will not be recorded. Decisions will be made about offering an ongoing support group or more educational opportunities in our parish after the last class.

Our parish mental health ministry is not intended to replace professional services. We are trained in appropriate procedures to maintain the privacy of those with whom we relate. We all continue to be involved in diocesan mental health training. We can be reached at mhmdivinemercy@gmail.com and our team includes Brenda Murphy, Kay Ringelstetter, Kate Rossing and Marian Thistle.

Crisis Line is 988 24 hours a day/7 days a week
