Silent Screams: Is Anybody Listening

Orangeburg, South Carolina
Rosemary Graham

Mental health has become the hot topic in this country and worldwide.  Statistics show that depression is becoming the leading cause of disability worldwide.  It’s a topic that needs to be intentionally addressed in our schools and churches.  Pastors, leaders, adults, youth and children can be affected.  Some of our children are battling depression with suicide ideation.  Sadly, a 17 yo male teen active in church committed suicide in June.  The church has been silent addressing this, but it’s time we start the conversations and educate ourselves to tear down the stigmas and find ways to bring love and support to our family, friends and community.

This conference will bring awareness on mental health issues that impact children and youth. The most common disorders are anxiety and depression. Suicide is alarmingly increasing among children, especially black boys and girls ages 5-12. Learn from mental health professionals about how behavior is communication and what we can do to love and support our children. There will also be the Suicide Prevention Awareness Certification conducted by the South Carolina Mental Health of America.

Friday evening – meal and opening with special prayer and anointing and seminar
Sabbath will include seminars, sermon, and certification training at 3:00 p.m.
