How to Support a Support Group: Addictions and Mental Illness (and lots of follow up)
Wednesday, April 17, noon to 1:30 pm at the Indiana Interchurch Center (1100 W. 42nd St.) — clergy and lay leaders from several religious traditions will share their congregations’ experiences with support groups at their places of worship.
It will be a chance to learn about the faiths of others, about different cultures’ views of mental wellness, and perhaps even about our own religious beliefs and practices.
If you can’t attend, and think “Oh no, I can never be part of an essential conversation like this,” don’t despair. There are a score of conversations, workshops, and conferences in the near future, with more being added every week. These are great ways to follow up the Interfaith Coalition for Mental Health’s monthly luncheons: meet a new network of engaged professionals and religious leaders, discover new ways to grapple with the issues ICMH raises.
