In a 2-hour session, Empower provides a faith community with a clinical and biblical perspective of mental health. This includes: understanding mental health and stigma, recognizing the signs of mental disorders, how and when to refer to a mental health professional, & ways you can develop and support your mental health ministry.

The online Support Group Training equips volunteers with the skills and structured tools to facilitate support groups. We call our support groups “Transformed Groups”, and provide our free, faith-based curricula for these groups:
· Minds Transformed- for those living with mental health challenges
· Families Transformed- for the loved ones of those living with mental health challenges
· Hearts Transformed-for survivors of trauma
The 4 R’s Online Training teaches a faith community how to create a safe environment for those struggling with mental illness. This course will equip you with the techniques for identifying mental illness, developing safe and effective situational responses, and building a network to quickly connect those in distress with professional care.
We have recently partnered with the American Association of Christian Counselors to bring you an online Mental Health Coach training. The online training includes 3 courses: Foundations of Mental Health Coaching, Mental Health Coaching Skills, and Mental & Behavioral Health Disorders. After completion of the 40-hour, self-paced training, you will become a certified Mental Health Coach! Mental Health Coaching candidates are trained to provide one-on-one “coaching” to support people on their journey to mental health recovery & wellness.
We are transforming mental health care, one life at a time, one community at a time - your support will make a difference.
