Mental Health in the Church
Mental Health In the Church is a Program of IYCC, and provides workshops, seminars, and training for those that want to learn more about how to deal with the people that come through their faith base doors.
There are so many things that happen to people long before they encountered God, have faith, or arrive at a place of spiritual growth.
This program offers churches, faith based organizations and other entities valuable information on how to deal with Mental Health in the Church. We want to create a 100 Church network this year, and if you would like to join other churches who say, "Yes Mental Health in the Church is necessary", fill out the form and we will contact you for further information.
We can help you better help others and be strong in their faith too.
