Rev. Alan Johnson, Chair of the UCC Mental Health Network, was First Church’s guest preacher on Mental Health Sunday. He encouraged the congregation to “not shrink back” from the reality of mental illness—our own stories, those of our family members and our church family. The stigma around mental illness is strong. By breaking the silence and stepping forward we can offer and get support.
