All Saints seeks to foster Healthy Souls and be a resource for mental health as we integrate faith with life. As part of our #healthysouls initiative, we've started a partnership with Mental Health Connect, which is a collaboration of congregations throughout the Twin Cities that provides mental health support to individuals and their congregations.
What MHC Provides:
- Navigation - The navigation line is free and confidential, open from 8:30 a.m.- 5 p.m., Monday - Friday. They have trained volunteers and staff answering the phone. Each navigator has lived experiences with mental health challenges and will provide individual resources for the caller. Contact MHC at 612.312.3377.
- Community - MHC is currently collaborating with 23 faith communities to share resources and support. Ambassadors are the liaison between MHC and churches and meet monthly to discuss their communities, needs and helpful ways to support leadership and those that have mental health concerns.
- Education - The Education Team at MHC creates a list of monthly events and speakers. Events are open to all. Hear from experts in the field, learn new concepts and understand more about mental illness.
- Resources - MHC provides resources to empower people to find their own path. These are provided in their monthly newsletter, Facebook posts (@Mental Health Connect) and provided to church Ambassadors (Contacts are: Marge Schaffer or Karen Saboe). Email the church office to get more information.
