Take Time for Mental Health Speaker Series is a collaborative ministry between Bethlehem Lutheran Church Twin Cities and St. Joan of Arc Catholic Community, free and open to the public. It is designed to provide support for all people in our wider community - individuals living with mental illness, their families, friends, and those working in the mental health field. We do this by providing resources, education, and social interaction while emphasizing a holistic approach to the body-mind-spirit connection.
Join us on the second Monday of most months, 6:30-8:00 PM!
FEBRUARY 14, 2022 “Strengthening Caregivers' Resilience Amidst a Loved One's Mental Illness ” @SJA Featuring Jeff Zuckerman, MSW, MA, author and editor
Jeff will share his story, how a husband strengthened his resilience when confronted with chaos, despair, and ambiguous loss during a loved one’s late-onset bipolar disorder. Together we will explore how mental health stigma and discrimination can be reduced through humor, candor education and courage. We will reinterpret hope in a way that strengthens love and benefits caregivers' own well-being and faith. His 2020 memoir, Unglued: A Bipolar Love Story, was a 2021 Minnesota Book Award finalist and won a silver medal from the Foreword Reviews Indie Book of the Year
