May is Mental Health Awareness Month. All are invited to join an online Facebook book group discussion; we will read Blessed Are the Crazy: Breaking the Silence About Mental Illness, Family and Church, by Sarah Griffith Lund, a UCC minister. The discussions begin May 22! You can order the book online. We have a couple of copies for purchase or for lending. This is a casual discussion, join anytime. There will be an in-person discussion on Wednesday, May 31, at 3 p.m.
It is estimated that more than one in five U.S. adults (57.8 million) lived with a mental health diagnosis in 2021. The UCC Mental Health Network reports that faith communities can make it easier for people to seek help for mental health conditions.
