Bridges to hope is a free mental health training for family community leaders.
Because religion and spirituality often play a vital role in healing, it’s not uncommon for families and individuals experiencing mental health issues to turn to a faith leader first for help. Yet faith leaders, staff and key outreach volunteers are often lacking the information, education and resources to be the “bridge tohope” needed as people navigate serious, sometimes life-threatening, mental health issues.
