What is Fresh Hope?

Fresh Hope is an international network of Christian support groups for those who have a mental health diagnosis and for their loved ones.

At the core of Fresh Hope is the belief that it is possible to live well in spite of having a mental health challenge because of the hope found in Christ; that no matter how one feels, it is possible to still have hope because of Christ.

A Fresh Hope group is a peer-to-peer-led, safe, encouraging, and healing environment where real hope and real healing take place and the sure hope of Christ is foundational.

“Studies show that peer support is a critical part of any wellness plan for people living with mental illness. Yet many struggle to find support groups that offer hopeful, uplifting support week after week. That’s what I love about Fresh Hope. It’s created by someone who has been there and lives it. It’s designed to help people take charge of their mental health and to actually get healthier. It truly is a program centered around hope—the true and lasting hope we can find in God.”
