On Monday, June 17th, at 1:30 pm, the group will discuss Blessed Youth: Breaking the Silence About Mental Illness with Children and Teens by Sarah Griffith Lund (Nurturing for Community). Mental illness can be tremendously isolating. This book helps remove the barriers of stigma and shame associated with mental illness in children and teens, helping them understand they are worthy. In addition to a helpful collection of stories, the book includes practical resources such as prayers and a guide for age-appropriate talks about warning signs and how to get help for themselves and friends. The author, the Rev. Dr. Sarah Griffith Lund, is an ordained minister who also serves on the national staff of the United Church of Christ as the Minister for Disabilities and Mental Health Justice. The group meets in the Bernice Nailen Memorial Library. All are welcome.
