MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS - Care Coordinator
Mental disorders are common, more common than cancer, diabetes, or heart  disease. According to the United States Surgeon General, an estimated 23 percent of American adults (those ages 18 and older)—about 44 million  people—and about 20 percent of American children, suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder during a given year.  Source: www.doctoroz.com

The mission of the Mental Health Awareness Ministry Team is to provide support, encouragement, education and acceptance to individuals and their families living with mental illness in a faith-based environment.

We  share prayer, friendship, joy and laughter, concerns and sadness, milestone moments and opportunities that have helped us to grow in God's abundant grace.
