Supporting Mental Health

 

support

One of Elevation’s Key Values is Life Together, which means, in part, that we want to be ‘real’ with one another – to live with integrity. But the very real challenges we face with respect to our mental health can create barriers to this kind of community. As a church, then, we have been growing in both our awareness of the challenges we face along the road to mental health and in our commitment to supporting one another along the way.

We are currently planning a series of conversations about various topics related to mental health, both for those who are struggling in a certain area and those who want to learn how to support the people around them. Please stay tuned to this page for details.

UPCOMING EVENT:

As much as we are committed to supporting one another through the ups and downs of life, there are many valuable resources to be found outside of our Elevation community. We have gathered some of those resources here, so please check out the links below:
