Facing Mental Health Issues During a Pandemic

Wednesday, November 11 at 7:00 PM

Jim Liggett, a licensed clinical psychologist, will discuss the critical topic of dealing with mental health issues during a pandemic.  He will focus on ways to help ourselves and walk with others in the congregation and the wider community.

Rev, Kirk Moore, pastor at St. Paul’s UCC in Downers Grove and member of the UCC-Mental Health Network WISE Team will introduce our congregation to the WISE (Welcoming, Inclusive, Supportive, Engaged) concept as we seek to become a UCC-certified WISE congregation for mental health.
