PHBC to Host Mental Health Forum on Dec. 1

Friday, October 31, 2014 | Lyla Bailey


On Monday, December 1, Park Hill Baptist Church will host a special community forum called, "Changing Attitudes: The Church and Mental Health."

The purpose of this event is to facilitate a discussion about the important role of churches in collaborating with community resources in providing much-needed help and support to those who are experiencing emotional, mental, and spiritual issues.

Dr. Garrick D. Conner is the coordinator for the forum. Conner serves as the church’s Discipleship Pastor and is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. “At any given point in time, one in four Americans is struggling with some level of mental illness or intense emotional stress,” Conner said. “The church must rise up to help de-stigmatize these shame-based issues that are an inherent part of the universal human experience.”

The forum will feature a number of short talks by local professional counselors, therapists, ministers, and others who regularly  encounter those who struggle with challenges related to emotional and mental issues. This event is geared toward individuals who suffer from mental illness or emotional pain, as well as family members who strive to provide encouragement and support.
