Youth Mental Health

The NE MN Synod Youth Ministry & Mental Health Initiative provides resources and education on mental health so we might begin to break the stigma surrounding mental illnesses and equip young people and leaders with resources within a faith context. There are five primary focus areas: mental wellbeing, anxiety, depression, suicide, and grief. Resources from the Initiative include:

Mental Health Discussion Guides and Kits:

Discussion guides to help young people learn about and have conversations on mental health conditions, ask questions, and give tools and resources…all within a faith context.


For ministry leaders and parents.

Funding for the NE MN Synod Youth Ministry & Mental Health Initiative is provided through a generous grant from Disability Ministries, made possible through Always Being Made New: The Campaign for the ELCA.
