EDUCATE - EQUIP - ENGAGE
No one expected we would be confronted with such a pandemic as COVID-19, but here we are. People struggling with mental illness and those who are shut in may be feeling as if the walls are collapsing in on them. With schedules, plans and routines disrupted, those coping controls become difficult to manage. We at Agora Network Ministries want to support you with valuable resources for you and people you know.
Below are links to trusted information and organizations who are offering help and support in this time of crisis.
Time to Thrive
**SUPPORT for your emotional and mental health.**
COVID-19 has turned our world upside down. While we’re all in this together practicing isolation and minimizing contact, people deal with these situations differently. Some seem to manage well while others struggle with their emotional and mental health during this time. Anxiety can skyrocket as can depression and other emotional stressors. Agora Network Ministries is offering a 6-week online course for people in need of support. The sessions will help guide participants toward better stress reduction, healthier thoughts, life renewal, Love for God and more. The first sessions are scheduled for Tuesday, May 19, with times to be determined depending on registration.
"I have been praying about a way to address mental health issues within our church context and I feel that meeting up with you [AGORA Network Ministries] was part of God's timing."
