WISE Congregations

The UCC MHN Executive Committee on Thursday made the decision to cancel the WISE PNE Conference on May 16.  COVID-19 has had a significant impact on everyone and every organization; therefore, we chose to err on the side of care for everyone's health and safety. We know that many have already put much energy into the planning, yet we wanted to make sure that people knew we were also keeping their health needs ahead of our plans. We are hopeful that we can conduct the conference in May 2021. We pray that everyone remains safe and healthy. 

Please stay tuned for more information and or tips from the UCC MHN.

Join this Mental Health Movement in the UCC.

On behalf of the UCC Mental Health Network, I warmly invite you to attend a WISE Conference on Mental Health. Being impacted myself by mental health conditions in my own family, I know these conferences do 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.
