A webinar recorded on October 7, 2021

Janelle Bitikofer's June webinar, “Providing Mutual Support When People Are Experiencing Mental Illness,” was so engaging, and viewers had so many questions, that we offered a part two. In this continued conversation held on October 7, we discussed practical ways for congregations to engage in mutual care.
