Mental Health Ministry Development
The first place many turn to in a crisis is their faith home. SamaraCare equips congregations to advocate for and walk alongside people with mental illness. Our goal is to help faith communities think through and implement the best ways to support people with mental illness as well as the individuals and families caring for them.
Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. In the Mental Health First Aid course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help.
