We will help you establish a hope-filled mental health ministry.

People are literally dying for the hope your church has to offer.

The statistics in America are staggering.

1 out of 5 suffers from a mental health challenge

1.4 million attempted suicides annually

48,344 died by suicide annually

While the doctor, therapist and medicine are necessary, they are not enough. The suicide rates continue to climb. Suicide is 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. and the 2nd leading cause for those ages 14 to 24.

There is a serious gap between someone receiving the medical treatment for a mental illness and them learning how to live well in spite of it. This gap is critical. And your church has the hope they need.

What can you do?

Your church, along with Fresh Hope, can bridge the gap between hopelessness and hope, that is rooted in faith, based upon clinical research.


Offering a Fresh Hope group is one way to offer real hope and real healing to the hopeless who suffer from a mental health diagnosis ...and for their loved ones.
