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.
If everyone who reads and appreciates FāVS, helps fund it, we can provide more events like this. For as little as $5, you can support FāVS – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
