The Caring Congregation Program is a series of workshops focused on welcoming and supporting people with mental disorders and their families into spiritual and religious communities. The goal of the workshops is to reduce prejudice by increasing understanding and acceptance among people who have mental disorders, giving ideas for specific supportive actions that can be undertaken. The program intentionally honors the spiritual component in caring for mental disorder, thus building a community that will become a source of caring for those with mental disorders.
