Restoration Mental Health Ministry
The magnitude of mental illness in this country is staggering. According to the Surgeon General,
one in every five Americans experiences a mental disorder in any given year and half of all Americans.
have such disorders at some time in their lives. These illnesses of the brain affect all of us,
regardless of age, gender, economic status or ethnicity. Nearly every person sitting in the
pews has been touched in some way by mental illness. And yet individuals and families continue
to suffer in silence or stop coming to their faith community because they are not receiving the
.support they so desperately need.
Restoration Mental Health Ministry extends the radical friendship of
Jesus by providing transforming love, support, and hope through the local church. The heart of this ministry
comes from three passages of Scripture: “I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father
I have made known to you” (John 15:15), “Serve one another in love” (Galatians 5:13b), and “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:13).
