Frazer Church to Host Mental Health Summit

Frazer Church will host a mental health summit titled Faith Meets Mental Health on May 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

To register for the free event, visit www.frazer.church/mentalhealth. Lunch registrations are open until May 11.

The summit’s keynote speaker 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 facing 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 barrier to mental health support within the church comes in the form of stigma,” he said. “For years, there have been common misconceptions about the causes, treatment, or even the existence of mental illness. Because of the stigma surrounding mental health, there are people everywhere suffering in silence, never getting the help they need because they don’t feel safe talking about it. Church should be a safe place where people can talk about anything.
