This Sunday morning we recognize Mental Health Awareness Month and re-affirm our commitment to the Stigma-Free / Mental Health movement in Bergen County and beyond. David Horst, Minister, explores the connection between mental health and spiritual health in his sermon “Healthy Mind, Healthy Spirit.” We welcome the All Seasons Chamber Players as our Guest Artists. Members of the Pastoral Care Committee light the chalice, provide the flowers, and host Coffee Hour.
In 2015, through the educational and advocacy efforts of the Pastoral Care Committee, members of Central Unitarian Church voted to be a designated Stigma-Free Zone as part of the county-wide campaign to bring awareness to mental health.
Americans have observed Mental Health Awareness Month every May since 1949, reaching millions of people through the media, local events, and screenings.
