We’re glad you’re here! This site is intended for you – a faith leader, an interested layperson, or a mental health professional seeking to engage with the faith community.
September is Suicide Prevention & Awareness Month!
Join Pathways to Promise and AJ French, from Gift of Voice, on September 10 to learn how faith communities can have conversations about suicide prevention, attempts and recovery that are helpful and not harmful.
Your support enables us to continue our work with the faith community raising awareness about mental health, and developing groups that support people living with mental illness, their friends and families.
Introducing the Pathways to Promise NAMI FaithNet Grant Project!
Pathways is working with 5 NAMI Affiliates to build their capacity to work with faith and spiritual communities seeking to develop mental health or wellness ministry programs.
Are you or someone you know in crisis?
National Suicide Prevention Hotline: 1-800-273-8255
Crisis Text Line: 741-741
There are three steps congregations can take in developing their capacity to support recovery and wellness with individuals and families facing serious mental health issues.
1. Assessing the mental health needs of a congregation
2. Providing a basic understanding of various mental health issues they may encounter
3. Learning how to form: local interfaith mental health training coalitions, clusters of congregations, congregational mental health committees, companionship care teams
