Who We Are:
In April 2010, Toledo Area Ministries held a forum to discuss the continuing stereotypes and false information that still exist in congregations around the issues related to mental illness. As a result of the information and stories shared it was decided to form a Mental Health Council in order to raise the bar on information and education related to a congregational response to mental illness within congregations and the community. Pastors and Church Staff need better tools at their disposal and the myths around mental illness need to diminish. Congregations need to become aware that these issues often exist in silence in the very people with whom they worship.
In order to become a more compassionate people of faith, the Mental Health Task Force was formed to inform, equip, and empower clergy, congregations and the community about Mental Health and its related issues.
In 2013, TAM Mental Health Task Force received a grant with which to hire a part time Mental Health Task Force Coordinator, which resulted in it becoming the TAM Mental Health Council, a Program of Toledo Area Ministries.
