Hope for Mental Health

At Monmouth Christian Church

 

Our over all goal is to make it safe to talk about mental health issues, to get rid of stigma, and help people find the resources for healing and managing mental health issues.  We also promote mental health for everyone!  

 

This ministry is fueled by the biblical mandate to extend the love and friendship of Jesus to everyone, making the local church a source of love, hope and support.
