Anabaptist Disabilities Network and Church of the Brethren Discipleship Ministries are co-sponsoring a webinar titled “Churchwide Change: Strategies to reduce stigma and increase mutual support for people experiencing mental illness in our congregations.” This webinar, featuring input from Janelle Bitikofer, will take place Oct. 7 from 2 to 3 p.m.

A previous webinar led in June by Janelle Bitikofer, “Providing Mutual Support When People are Experiencing Mental Illness,” was so engaging and viewers had so many questions, that Anabaptist Disabilities Network is offering this follow-up webinar. In this continued conversation, participants will discuss practical ways for congregations to engage in mutual care.

Janelle Bitikofer is Executive Director of We Rise International, lead mental health trainer for Churches Care – a mental health and addictions training program for congregations, and author of Streetlights: Empowering Christians to Respond to Mental Illnesses and Addictions, a mental health and addictions support manual for churches.
