“Youth, Trauma and Spirituality” — luncheon and beyond
Join us at the last event of our fall series: Part IV: Youth, Trauma, and Spirituality. The NAMI Ending the Silence Coordinator Joanna Goff and Center for Interfaith Cooperation will facilitate conversation about how congregations can increase understanding and prevention of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). The ACEs model is a research-based, usable assessment and public health model for understanding, mitigating, and ultimately preventing the impact of childhood traumas. Preview the ACEs assessment here, and continue learning about the intersections of adverse childhood experiences with spirituality at our final luncheon of 2018. We have only a few spots left. If you wish to come and have not yet RSVP’d, please do so. Walk-ins are welcome, but lunch may be limited.
This event is final part of our 2018 trauma-informed care series “Walking with the Wounded: Supporting Trauma Survivors in Faith Communities.” But don’t worry, we’ll have more Interfaith Coalition for Mental Health events in 2019. In the meantime, here are some more upcoming discussions you may want to attend.
Is one of your loved ones struggling with anxiety or depression and you aren’t sure how to help? Come learn what you can do to make a difference.
Learn if your loved one is considering suicide and what you can do to help.
How effective are prison ministries at addressing mental health problems of prisoners during and after their incarceration?
Each Interfaith Coalition for Mental Health luncheon concentrates on a specific mental health practice or accessible tool individuals can use in their congregations. Together, the luncheons outline a “core curriculum” of how best to address basic, ubiquitous mental health needs of faith communities. The curriculum is designed so that individuals who attend every luncheon will be generally equipped and knowledgeable about mental health community resources.
ICMH presents our last event of the Spring 2019 Series: Community Building: Resiliency Across Sectors.
We now ask for an admission fee of $5. Because we have often reached our RSVP capacity, ICMH makes this change to accommodate everyone who wishes to attend. We will accept walk-ins.

Addiction touches many people’s lives, but it is something that few of us really discuss. Addiction should not be battled alone! It impacts the individual, family, and community-we all know someone who is affected by an addiction of some sort. Please join Archbishop Thompson and Substance Addiction Ministries of Archdiocese of Indianapolis on August 14 at 7:00 pm for a Substance Addiction Ministry Mass at Ss. Peter and Paul Cathedral (1347 North Meridian St, Indianapolis 46202), where we will lift up in prayer those who are afflicted and affected by addictions. A reception and refreshments will be available immediately following Mass in the Cathedral Parlor. Please contact us at email@example.com with any questions.
