Join SpokaneFāVS for its next Coffee Talk today, April 7, for a discussion on faith and mental health.
According to the National Alliance on Mental Health, 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. experience mental illness. Our panelists will discuss how the faith community should respond to this.
- SpokaneFāVS Board President Debbie Selzer, who will share her personal story and experience surrounding mental health and wrote “The faith community can’t turn their backs on those with mental illness“
- Ven. Thubten Jigme of Sravasti Abbey, who used to work as a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner
- Mark Baird, Clinical Psychologist and Assistant Professor of Psychology at Whitworth University, who wrote “For those who are hurting church should be a hospital, not a hiding place.”
Coffee Talk will begin at 10 a.m. at Saranac Commons, 19 W. Main. All are welcome to attend these community forums.
