Relax, Nothing is Under Control: A Mother and Child’s Journey Through Mental Health
All parents desire for their children to be well and healthy, and this also extends to mental health. In this class, join two mothers as they share their experiences, and how they have witnessed God's grace and provision through the ups and downs of parenting and navigating mental health.
In this class, our speakers will openly share about their respective families, the lessons learned, and regrets along the way. You will also hear from the speakers’ children, an adult and a teen, who will tell us about their personal experiences with mental illness, and share some of what has and has not been helpful at home and in their church communities.
