Pathways is excited to share the work of ministries and organizations that are contributing to the work of increasing mental health literacy, eliminating stigma and promoting recovery. Below are links to those organizations and ministries.
Bridges to Care and Recovery is a collaborative, community initiative designed to extend the system of care for people challenged with behavioral health disorders, specifically in North St. Louis City and County. BHN works with key partners to include hospital and community behavioral health leadership, advocacy groups, and faith leaders to provide a multi-pronged approach to expand the role of faith-based organizations in the identification of mental health and substance use disorders, and the reduction of stigma to support referral and access to behavioral health care.
