[Living Room] ["Speaking My Mind" Toastmasters Club]


We invite you to journey with us in preparing your faith community to support mental health recovery.


Did you know that 1 in 5 Canadians will experience a mental health issue in any given year, and that 1 in 3 Canadians will experience a mental health issue in a lifetime?


This means that every Sunday at least 20% of people sitting in pews are struggling deeply, some barely able to keep breathing. Some congregants or seekers are not able to attend a Sunday service because their mental health keeps them away.

Sanctuary Mental Health Ministries is here to help. We journey alongside churches and parishes, preparing communities to support mental health recover.
