Some ways we can seek wholeness and well-being:
- Hold on to the promises of scripture that nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:39) and God is with us (Psalm 23)
- Learn more about our mental health status by using a free online mental health screening
- Show God’s love and compassion for people seeking wholeness. Listen with empathy. Resist judgement.
- Educate yourself about mental health. Get certified in Mental Health First Aid, which is now a virtual training.
- Help destigmatize by being mindful of the language we use and how we talk about mental health. Help to normalize the full spectrum of mental health experiences by acknowledging that for many of us our mental health can be fluid, changing day to day, or even hour by hour. It’s okay to not be okay.
- Advocate for mental health services in your local community. Ask your elected officials to provide funding to mental health services and to provide mental health professionals in the public schools.
- Speak up and break the silence about mental health. Connect to mental health resources in your community. Create spaces for support so that no one experiences extreme forms of loneliness resulting from stigma and shame. Invest in your own mental well-being by being proactive to care for your whole self: mind, body, and spirit. Know that you are not alone and that you are loved.
- Community Lutheran is seeking to create a healing circle/spiritual support group where it is safe to share our stories without fear, shame, or judgement. Email Pastor Marty at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be a part of a group where you have the opportunity to confidentially check-in, share how you are doing, and get prayer support.
- Community Lutheran also offers a care ministry called "Stephen Ministry." Stephen Ministers are trained to help provide Christian caregiving to members of our congregation and community. These skilled caregivers are equipped to bring Christ's healing love to people who are grieving or experiencing any number of life's losses and setbacks.
