THE SANCTUARY APP: TOGETHER AGAIN

We’re delighted to share the new Sanctuary app, featuring Together Again—a game to spark conversations about wellbeing and faith. This app was specifically designed for the UK, but it is available worldwide for anyone who wants to connect with others as pandemic restrictions ease. Discover a simple way to keep the wellbeing conversation alive in our faith communities and beyond with Together Again.

This eight-session course explores the realities of mental health and illness, as well as the vital need for faith-based community conversations about these topics. The sessions are accompanied by compelling films that feature the stories of Catholics living with mental health challenges, along with the insights of archbishops, theologians, and psychologists.

The Sanctuary Course for Catholics is available on FORMED.

The Sanctuary Course is for anyone who wants to learn about faith and mental health. It requires no previous training or expertise—just a willingness to engage in dialogue with other believers. The course is an eight-week study guide for small groups. Each week participants gather together, read through the content out loud, watch a film, and engage in conversation, reflection, and prayer. The course is designed to be run by small group leaders in your church or organization.

The Church is called to be a sanctuary for all people, at all stages of their mental wellness journeys. This eight-week course is designed for small groups and explores mental health from psychological, social, and theological perspectives using films and discussion guides.

One in five people experience mental health challenges worldwide, so mental health is important for all of us. We’re all impacted—whether we know someone who lives with mental health challenges, or we may face challenges of our own. By supporting this campaign, you’ll help raise awareness and reduce stigma surrounding mental health. And by engaging in physical activity, you may improve your own wellbeing!

Our goal this summer is to raise $100,000 to help reach 100,000 people with resources for mental health and wellbeing. All donations through August 31 will be matched thanks to a generous donor, so your impact is doubled. 

Be sure to watch our YouTube kickoff with a message from Sanctuary CEO Daniel Whitehead, information on how you can be involved, and a special segment with Markku Kostamo, Sanctuary’s Director of Development, on his journey of living with bipolar disorder. 

GOAL: $100,000
