A Successful MHC Stories of Hope Fundraiser

On May 9th, All Saints joined the fundraiser for our community partner, Mental Health Connect. People from All Saints filled one of 37 tables at the event, and 280 people listened to stories of hope.

David Lohman’s music and story inspired us to consider how church communities can support the many who experience mental health challenges. Asking for help when we need it was a key message that came through all the stories.

Thank you to all who contributed to the MHC fundraiser. If you have not yet donated and would like to contribute, click here.

Event participants each received A Mental Wellbeing Pocket Guide, which you can download, fold, and use as a reminder of what you can do to build your mental wellbeing. The guide gives details on how to practice the following actions for wellbeing:
  • Practice gratitude.
  • Practice mindfulness.
  • Take a values inventory.
  • Move your body.
  • Spend time in community.
  • Get enough sleep.
  • Breathe to manage anxiety.
  • Promote relaxation.
