Frazer Church Hosts Mental Health Summit

Frazer Church will host a Mental Health Summit on May 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. called Faith Meets Mental Health

Go to www.frazer.church/mentalhealth to register for the free event. Registration for lunch is possible until 11 May.

The keynote speaker at the summit is Nate Stewart, founder of the Mental Health Pulpit.

Mental Health Pulpit began in early 2019 in response to what Stewart saw as specific challenges to the Church, including a lack of support and education in response to mental health needs.

“It was, and still is, my belief that the biggest hurdle to supporting mental health within the church comes in the form of stigma,” he said. “For years, there have been common misconceptions about the causes of, treatment, or even existence of mental illness. Because of the stigma surrounding mental health, there are people everywhere who suffer in silence, never getting the help they need because they don’t feel safe talking about it. The church should be a safe place where people can talk about anything.”
