Learn how the stigma and challenges of mental illness can be re-framed in a positive, revolutionary way as a spiritual path!

This interactive workshop will use presentation, small group discussion and reflection time to help participants explore their spiritual growth.

Regardless of religious affiliation or beliefs, all persons who have experienced mental illness as well as family, friends, caregivers and mental health service providers are encouraged to participate.

The day’s activities will help participants achieve the following objectives:

  1. Re-frame mental illness as a journey of challenge and hardship worthy of the highest esteem,
  2. Reflect on the significance of mental illness as a sacred journey and of the growth opportunities inherent within that journey, and
  3. Connect more deeply with their own personal and joint stories.
