The Sanctuary Course @ Yarrow United Mennonite Church

Since the rise of Covid19 in North America life has become more stressful and might feels unstable for you. It’s hard to feel energized when our regular rhythms of life have changed because of outside circumstances. One way that we want to help you feel more stable is through The Sanctuary Course.

Over the course of the eight weeks, participants will explore topics such as:

  • Understanding mental health and illness
  • Challenging stigma
  • The recovery journey
  • Companionship
  • Self-care
  • The role of community in mental health recovery

Each topic is explored from a psychological, social, and theological perspective. Additionally, each session is accompanied by a compelling film featuring the story of an individual who has journeyed through mental health challenges as a person of faith.

Watch the course trailer below to have a taste of what 8 weeks of discussion, study and our own transformation might look like:
