Stigma chart

In the United States, 1 in 5 adults and 1 in 6 youth experience mental illness in any given year.*
This puts you and your congregation at the forefront of a mental health crisis, and makes you uniquely positioned to provide comfort, hope, resources and professional referrals.

Give the silence a voice. If you’re ready to break the stigma and empower change, join us at the 2022 Look Up Conference. This one-day event will give pastors and laypeople practical ideas for establishing or enhancing their church’s mental health ministry.
