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 third WISE Conference on Mental Health being held at St. Paul's United Church of Christ, Downers Grove, IL on Friday, May 4, 2018. 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.
