In 2017, Christ Our Anchor Presbyterian Church broadened its vision for mission. In listening to our surrounding community (of all ages), what we heard over and over again was that one of the great unmet needs in our area is support, learning and advocacy for issues of mental health and addiction. We think faith communities are a vital witness in these areas by getting more involved, and de-stigmatizing these struggles for those we serve. We have held several educational events drawing not only our members and friends, but also practitioners in the community on topics such as Building Resilience in Our Children & Youth and Crisis Intervention. We have also participated in the annual NAMI Walk in Baltimore.
