We all have mental health-and it matters to God. The likelihood that student 6th-12th grade or someone they know—may suffer from a mental health challenge is rising.
But there’s hope: Research shows one of the best predictors of a student’s success in life is having at least one consistent, supportive, and caring adult in their lives.
This is a special event designed to empower and equip parents to meet your youth’s mental health challenges head-on and support them in the way they need most.
Friday, November 4 — 6:30-9:00PM
in the Grace Gathering Room
