SANCTUARY IS LAUNCHING IN THE UK

Having formed a number of fruitful partnerships with UK organizations working in the intersection of faith and mental wellbeing over the last two years, we are excited to announce the launch of Sanctuary UK. Our plan is to complement the ongoing work to grow healthier communities in the UK.

Our partnerships have been a great source of encouragement and mutual growth, and we look forward to becoming more involved in the conversation about faith and mental wellbeing in the UK. Our hope is that together we can continue serving the Church by providing needed resources that connect with the work already being done.

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.
