EHF Mental Health Learning Network
Hosted by the EHF Congregational Engagement Team and mental health partners Lynda Frost and Anna Jackson
The Episcopal Health Foundation invites you to take part in a Learning Community composed of a series of 90-minute sessions aimed at exploring how we can create connection and promote the mental health and well-being of people in our communities and congregations.
Criminal (in)Justice and Mental Health
Date: Thursday, May 20, 2021
Time: 6:30PM – 8:00PM CST
The EHF Learning Network is a next step for Episcopal congregations looking for imaginative ways to connect, deepen strategies for promoting mental health and well-being, and gain experience using virtual meeting platforms to invite meaningful conversation.
These 90-minute sessions are aimed at exploring how we can create connection and promote the mental health and well-being of people in our communities and congregations.
The sessions have two primary goals:
1) Increase participants’ mental-health related knowledge, particularly through the lens of mental health as a social justice issue
2) Build connections across congregations in Texas with similar interests in promoting congregational and community well-being.
This second Learning Network session, “Criminal (in)Justice,” will:
– Increase understanding of the nature and impact of incarceration;
– Clarify the intersection of mental health and justice involvement; and
– Identify intervention points along the continuum of justice involvement, including where congregations may have an opportunity to make a difference.
