May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and we will focus on some various topics during this month on Sundays. To prepare for these conversations, I want to share some information, scripture, and what the United Methodist Church believes. “Let’s Talk About It” is the name of our May series, and “tackles a different social stigma each week.” People struggle with mental and physical health daily, but God provides healing and hope instead of criticizing us. Be a good neighbor and look at what I am sharing to help you and your neighborhood during May, and the rest of the year.
The following information is from the General Board of Church and Society of the UMC.
What do the facts say?
What does The United Methodist Church say?
Do not be scared to ask for help or to help someone who needs it. Be the light for those might feel they are in the dark during Mental Health Awareness Month.
Peace be with you. Pastor Matt
