The Interfaith Coalition for Mental Health is hosting its luncheon on Gender-Based Sexual Harassment and Assault. This month, Reverend Alan Thames of White Water Valley Presbytery, and Carol Hornbeck of CenterPoint Counseling, will be explaining how they have confronted this issue in their congregations and faith communities at large, and facilitating a discussion about the role of faith leaders and mental health professionals in addressing this issue. This is a chance for faith leaders and mental health professionals to be aware of their assumptions, and discuss how we as community members can understand and support survivors.

Why should you attend this event?

  • To outline how one faith community in Indianapolis (Presbyterians) has encountered this issue and taken steps to handle it
  • To encourage an interfaith conversation among faith communities and mental health professionals on assumptions we tend to have about this topic.
  • To encourage discussion on how people in faith communities can work to be more understanding and supportive towards survivors

Lunch is provided for anyone who pre-registers on Eventbrite by 11:59 PM on March 15th. Walk-ins are welcome, but lunch cannot be guaranteed.
