Hope for Mental Health Community

Sunday, May 26, 2019, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Location: Saddleback Church, 1 Saddleback Pkwy, Lake Forest, CA US 92630

Join us at the monthly Hope for Mental Health Community! This is a safe place for anyone living with mental illness, family members, friends, volunteers, and anyone who has a passion to journey with others toward hope. We invite you to this warm and welcoming place where you can connect, learn about mental health and wellness, and provide support to one another. This community is founded on the spiritual truths that you are loved, you have a purpose, you belong, you have a choice, and you are desperately needed in this world.


This month, we will be hearing from the author of “Glorious Weakness” Alia Joy, living with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder, who came face to face with weakness, poverty, and loss in ways that made her doubt God was good. On her life’s journey, Alia has explored what it means to be "poor in spirit", and challenges our cultural tendency to "pull ourselves up by our own bootstraps". She inspires anyone who has struggled with feeling inadequate, disillusioned, or just too broken to find hope and embrace true vulnerability and authenticity, with God and one another, demonstrating how weakness does not disqualify us from inclusion in the kingdom of God – instead, it is our very invitation to enter in.

Alia’s message is an antidote to despair, helping weary hearts reclaim the truth that God is good, even when life has brought heartache and pain. We hope you can join us and that you are encouraged by her story!
