Mental Health Ministries Team

About one in five adults has a diagnosable mental disorder. Mental illnesses are more common than cancer, diabetes or heart disease. With proper care and treatment, between 70 and 90 percent of persons with mental illnesses experience a significant reduction of symptoms and an improved quality of life.

The mission of Saint John’s Mental Health team is:
• To promote understanding of mental health issues
• To reduce the stigma of mental illness
• To support individuals and families in the SJUMC community in all aspects of the continuum of mental health, from those needing support with life events, to those experiencing mental illness or mental health crises
• To improve access to affordable community services for people with mental illnesses and their families
