Interfaith Coalition for Mental Health cover
Mission The ICMH is a collaboration between religious leaders, mental health care providers, community service organizations and government agencies to:

- Educating the faith community leaders about mental illness and how faith can be incorporated into recovery

- Providing faith communities with relevant referral information to mental health and community support services

- Advocating at the personal and legislative levels for better mental health services

- Breaking the silence about mental illness, and replacing stigma with informed, supportive care
Description The Interfaith Coalition for Mental Health (ICMH) began in 2016 between the Center for Interfaith Cooperation and NAMI FaithNet. The ICMH focuses on bringing mental health practitioners together with faith leaders and community members to address mental wellness and emotional illnesses with the role of faith in recovery.

Why we care:

- People in distress often turn first to clergy and their faith community for support

- 1 in 5 adults will experience a diagnosable mental health disorder in any given year

- 50% of youth have considered suicide by age 15; 75% by age 24

- Untreated mental illness can lead to domestic violence, joblessness, school failure, homelessness, addictions, incarceration, or suicide

Many clergy want to learn to recognize, help, and refer people with serious mental illnesses and addiction issues
