Interfaith Luncheon Will Address Mental Health Issues

Posted on by Molly Kitching

Clergy of all faiths, congregational staff and lay leaders, students in seminary or chaplaincy programs, and anyone interested in mental health issues within a congregation or spiritual community are invited to attend “Learning from Each Other: A Continuing Interfaith Conversation on Mental Health” on Monday, May 7, 2018, from 11:30AM to 1:30PM at Plymouth Congregational Church, 1900 Nicollet Ave, Minneapolis.


The luncheon is designed to bring together people from different religions who are interested in mental health issues. Participants will learn from each other and share experiences to bring greater awareness, help, and hope to the topic of mental health.


The event will include an exhibition of selected works from “To Really See,” a collection created by members of Avivo ArtWorks, a community support program that offers art programming to adults with serious and persistent mental illness. Artists in “To Really See” created work that comments on the experience of taking medication to treat their mental illness.


There will also be an interactive presentation by the Barbara Schneider Foundation, a Minneapolis-based organization that provides crisis intervention/de-escalation training to police officers, mental health professionals and community members.


Box lunches meeting kosher and halal guidelines will be provided. An $8 donation per person is requested. Register online at or call Laurie Kramer at (612) 805-9933 or for more information.


Luncheon sponsors include Jewish Family Service of St. Paul, Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Minneapolis, Plymouth Congregational Church, Mt. Olivet Lutheran, The Basilica of St. Mary, Beth Jacob Congregation, Temple Israel, Muslim & Jewish Women of Minnesota, Sufi Center Minnesota, Mental Health Minnesota, Northwest Islamic Community Center and the Minnesota Rabbinical Association.
