Mental Health Resources

helpinghandsBelow are links to articles and resources on the subject of mental health (including addictions), as well as support resources within the KW area. The articles do not necessarily reflect the First Mennonite’s voice on mental health issues. We hope that they will be thought-provoking, and add to our conversation, as we seek to be loving and supportive of those in our midst, and our community, who struggle with mental health challenges.

A continuación se presentan enlaces a artículos y recursos sobre el tema de la salud mental (incluyendo las adicciones), así como recursos de apoyo en el área de KW. Los artículos no reflejan necesariamente la opinión de la Primera Iglesia  Menonita en temas de salud mental. Esperamos que los invite a la reflexión, y se unan a nuestra conversación, y a nuestros esfuerzos por dar cariño y apoyo a los que están entre nosotros, y en nuestra comunidad,  luchando con problemas de salud mental.
