What is the merge?
The Merge: Faith + Mental Health Summit is a 2-day event that will be hosted virtually this year. This event will focus on: issues, strategies, trainings, and solutions regarding mental health in the faith- based community.
We are bringing in a number of mental health practitioners, subject matter experts, and clergy as guest speakers. This event is unique because we address the natural and spiritual aspects of mental health. We believe in all people being healthy body, soul, and spirit [Ref: I Thess 5:23, 3 John 1:2].
Why the merge?
There is an urgent need for training, teaching, and strategies concerning mental health in the faith-based community. From the pulpit to the pews people are battling anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, and even addiction. Sadly, within the faith-based community a lack of understanding, stigma, and even shame have caused clergy and laity alike to suffer in silence.
Our endeavor with this conference is to bridge the gap between faith and mental health in a way that will provide resources and professional solutions to address mental health in the faith community.
This event will also help leaders, laity, and mental health providers have strategies, tools, and resources that will impact their homes, communities, and local assemblies. Registrants can anticipate prolific speakers, giveaways, handouts, relevant training sessions, networking opportunities, and more.
