As churches, we need to be a light to our communities. Many people when in crisis turn to the church for help. Learn how to walk alongside your neighbour.
About our Conference
Faith and Hope Ministries exists to empower congregations to support and care for those with mental illness and their families or their caregivers to provide a supportive Christian Community. As congregations become more equipped, members feel better understood and supported through their journey. The silence and stigma is being broken down.
Mental Illness can’t be ignored.
1 in 4 families have a close relative experiencing a mental illness
1 in every 5 Canadians will have a mental health problem at some point in their lives.
The World Health Organization (WHO) states that by year 2020 Mental illness will be the leading cause of disability in the world.
Who Supports the Caregivers in the Church?
As Jesus calls us to love one another, we all have a responsibility to support each another
