EHF Mental Health Learning Network Series | November 2023

November 14, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

In 2023, the Congregational Engagement Team will offer a virtual Mental Health Learning Network Series to support congregations as they promote mental health in their communities. The Learning Network is the 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.

The sessions will have two primary goals:
1) Increasing participants’ knowledge related to mental health and well-being, particularly through the lens of social justice; and

2) Building connections across congregations in Texas with similar interests in promoting congregational and community well-being.
