Showing Up for Each Other’s Mental Health

Showing Up for Each Other’s Mental Health

Do you or someone you love have lived experience with mental health problems? Today about 20% of the adult population are diagnosed with a mental health problem. Yet, even now it is often viewed through the lens of intolerance, ignorance, and fear.

We are pleased to host UU Rev. Barbara Meyers for the workshop
“Showing Up for Each Other’s Mental Health.”

This online Zoom presentation and discussion will be held on Saturday,
April 17, 2021 from 1:00 – 3:00 PM with a 10 minute break in the middle.

Rev. Meyers is a UU community minister with a mental health ministry based in Fremont, California, and President of the Board of the UU Mental Health Network . She is the author of a mental health curriculum, videos, TV shows, publications for congregations, and the book HELD – Showing Up for each Other’s Mental Health , published by Skinner House Books in August 2020, (available through the UUA bookstore and Amazon)

In this workshop, Rev. Barbara Meyers will discuss:

  • Stories from her mental health ministry – both how-to stories and how-not-to stories – giving guidance for congregants in the pews who want to help make a difference.
  • Show the importance of spiritual resources and peer groups
  • Discuss the impact that COVID is having on mental health and what people can do to mitigate it
  • The Unitarian Universalist Mental Health Network and it’s recent survey of mental health in the denomination

A $20 per person donation is welcomed but not required.
