The NE MN Synod Youth Ministry & Mental Health Initiative provides resources and education on mental health so we might begin to break the stigma surrounding mental illnesses and equip young people and leaders with resources within a faith context. There are five primary focus areas: mental wellbeing, anxiety, depression, suicide, and grief.
Resources from the Initiative include:
Mental Health Discussion Guides and Kits: Discussion guides to help young people learn about and have conversations on mental health conditions, ask questions, and give tools and resources…all within a faith context.
Funding for the NE MN Synod Youth Ministry & Mental Health Initiative is provided through a generous grant from Disability Ministries, made possible through Always Being Made New: The Campaign for the ELCA.
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 800-273-TALK (8255)
There are numerous mental health resources and providers available. This list curates links of resources and providers within the NE MN Synod, national mental health organizations, and organizations that have partnered with the NE MN Synod Youth Ministry and Mental Health Initiative. You can also find additional links and resources within the NE MN Synod Mental Health Discussion Guides.
