How the Community Can Serve as Protection | The 2015 Gathering on Mental Health and the Church

  • Family & Friends
  • Children's Mental Health
  • Student Mental Health

Mass shootings, street crime loss, neglect, poverty, substance abuse, fractured families, and failing schools are all part of the fabric woven into our children’s reality. And this reality often leads to generations of hopelessness and despair. When paired with proper supports, this reality can be altered. We do not have to be a hopeless generation!

This presentation focuses on how communities can respond after tragedy—whether they be public tragedies like Sandy Hook or more private tragedies that happen every day. Learn how there is hope for every child and family by promoting love, community, and connection among us. Hear about the mission of the Ana Grace Project. We believe we can all be a part of the solution.
