THE SANCTUARY COURSE IS FREE—FOREVER
Sanctuary Mental Health Ministries recognizes the need for access to online mental health resources in this season, and so we are happy to make The Sanctuary Course available for free. Simply use the code “mentalhealth” at checkout to receive a 100% discount. Once you have purchased The Sanctuary Course with your 100% discount, you will have unlimited access for you and your church community for life.
The Sanctuary Course now includes an additional session to address the unique need for mental health awareness and education in this season. The COVID-19 session is designed so that groups may choose to do it first, before the rest of the course, or as the final session.
We recognize the need for community and relational support during anxious times. This course is intended for use in small groups, and so now more than ever we ask that you gather online with friends or your church community to engage with the material together. A guide to best practices for online gatherings is now available on the Course Welcome page.
NEW COVID-19 SESSION IN THE SANCTUARY COURSE
We’ve created an additional course session to address the unique need for mental health awareness and education in this season. The ways that we understand and process our experiences of COVID-19 will have long-term implications for our recovery and mental wellness. This session may be completed before you begin the first session of The Sanctuary Course, after you finish the last session of The Sanctuary Course, or as a stand-alone discussion guide. The session is freely available as part of The Sanctuary Course materials.
FAITH, GRIEF, AND COVID-19: A CONVERSATION
Faith, Grief, and COVID-19: A Conversation is a four-part series that uses discussion guides and films to engage small groups in conversations about the challenges of this season. The COVID-19 pandemic has generated grief in all of our lives. This online resource is designed to help us understand grief as Christians, and to encourage us to begin to think creatively about how we can support grieving members of our communities while practicing physical distancing.
RESOURCES FOR COVID-19
This new resource page on our website has quick links to all of our resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic. You’ll find a grounding meditation and self-care tips from Sanctuary Ambassador Hillary McBride, a reflection on our “new normal” from Sanctuary Ambassador John Swinton, links to our relevant blog posts, and more.
