Project 139: Opening the door to promote positive mental health in a chaotic world

“I praise you for, I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.” Psalm 139:14

Trinity wants to be a safe place for adults and families to explore issues surrounding mental health. We are all wonderfully made, but so often we need support or guidance to fully live into God’s call to us.

Join us March 22-23, 2019 as we start the conversation to help make mental wellness a part of our everyday experience. We will have professionals impaneled to highlight symptoms of depression, anxiety, eating disorders and addiction. They will help facilitate general discussions on how and when to seek help for these concerns.

Of equal importance, participants will have a chance to practice some basic yoga and mindfulness techniques that are helpful in alleviating many stressors.  In addition, they will learn about sound nutrition. These approaches can help us stay calm and centered in the midst of our chaotic world.

This program is open to all adults and to children and youth 5th grade and older. We encourage children and parents to attend together. (Where appropriate, we may consider allowing children and youth to attend alone. For questions about this, contact us.)

We will kick off with a brief introduction on Friday, March 22. The program will take place on Saturday, March 23, 2019 from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm in Satterlee Hall. Lunch will be provided.

The registration fee is $40 per person, with a $100 cap for families. Please register online below.
