Do not fear; for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine." Isa. 43:1

On behalf of the UCC Mental Health Network, I warmly invite you to attend our second WISE Conference on Mental Health be-ing held at Venice United Church of Christ, Venice FL on Friday, October 20, 2017. Being impacted myself by mental health conditions in my own family, I know this Conference does make a difference. It reduces the stigma about mental illness and increases our understanding of mental health conditions and how our congregations can respond. You will experience personal stories; receive practical steps to engage in a mental health ministry in your congregation; and be introduced to the WISE (Welcoming, Inclusive, Supportive, Engaged) Covenant for congregations for mental health. Please join us.
