We of the UCC Mental Health Network continue to collaborate with the UCC Disabilities Ministries (DM) and share space with the UCC DM at the biennial General Synod. We provide resource materials for Mental Health Sunday to promote understanding and help you develop mental health ministries in your local churches. We have been part of planning the national UCC “Widening the Welcome: Inclusion for All” conferences. (You can access the presentations online.)

- While the diagnosis and treatment of serious mental illness is undergoing a revolution, the discrimination against persons with mental health concerns is still a fact of life.
- We believe that education through our churches is one key to changing this discrimination.
- We believe that networking together within the UCC and with similar networks in other denominations and faith groups will help us in our efforts.
- We believe that advocacy for individuals and for social and legislative change will improve the life of many.
- We believe that through our own policies and within our own ministries we can model for the rest of society how to be caring congregations and a compassionate denomination.
The UCC Mental Health Network exists to provide resources so that individuals and congregations may engage in these ministries.
