Small Group Workshops

Bridging the Gap...Mental Health Training for Church Leadership

Both 8-week small group workshops are  for pastors and church/ministry leaders only.


Regularly a subject in the Wall Street journal and openly discussed by all generations, mental health is now mainstream outside the walls of the church. But according to the Mental Health Commission of Canada, individuals affected by mental health problems will often seek help from their spiritual leaders, first and foremost. Is your ministry equipped with the latest research, resources and foundation of grace to address the waves of anxiety much of our society is experiencing? Join me as we engage mental health conversations through the lens of psychology, culture, and theology, exploring brain health topics such as depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, stigma, recovery, care-giving, differentiating mental health and mental illness, and more. 

Begin your fall semester:

   * Equipped with grace-focused mental health information for the family and congregation

   * Supplied with access to professional video testimonials and current resource material

   * Encouraged with new friendships to share frustrations and conversations

   * Actively addressing topics of this generation 

What have previous ministry leaders had to say?

  "Mental health is a continuum, and we all need strength to stay in the fight."

  "The material is universally conversational." 

  "The cultural diversity has been wonderful and insightful."

  "Lisa had expert advice and maintained a good balance of listening and instructing, she makes everyone feel valued and respected."
