A Caring Congregation: De-stigmatizing Mental Illness

Although mental illness is present in all communities, it is often hidden due to the stigma many still attach to these diseases. We will present what stigma is, why it exists, various kinds of stigma, and how best to fight it. Most essentially, we will discuss what this has to do with a caring congregation.
