Together, we will learn ways that our health, faith, and overall well-being intersect. A foundation of our wholeness is mental health, which includes our individual and community-wide mental health. Our work is anchored in the life of faith communities. Faith leaders and faith communities are not only impacted by mental health concerns but have an incredible opportunity to foster compassion and inclusion for all.
Thanks to The Duke Endowment, PHW is able to offer two grant opportunities for faith communities of color to apply towards mental health efforts.
- A $5,000-$10,000 grant to work on a mental health project. Up to 50 grants will be awarded in this range.
- A grant up to $50,000 to establish a mental health community hub through your faith community. We will award two grants in this range.
This application period for both of these grant opportunities will be rolling until Friday, May 5, 2023. Click here to learn more.
Inclusion Plans are intentional, strategic plans that support a health ministry’s outreach, programming, relationship-building, and overall impact. These plans ensure that all people are welcome and included. Click here to learn more.
Sacred Series Toolkit: Becoming a Trauma-Informed Faith Community: This toolkit will help your faith community consider how trauma impacts the worshipping community with ideas on how to address it. In the toolkit, you will find two video recordings, a discussion guide with a glossary of terms, liturgy, guiding questions, ministry ideas, and resources.
