What we do

Our work is divided into 5 key pillars

Awareness

Using a variety of communication platforms we seek to proactively highlight the continuum of mental health challenges facing our society and the need and availability for Christ-centered resources, training, and treatment programming.

Resources

We use multi-media channels to deliver to individuals and to participating churches the most current information available regarding the many mental health conditions and disorders, treatment options, and aftercare considerations.

Training

Beacon of Light professional staff presents workshops and training programs specifically designed for pastoral and lay staff, volunteers, parents, and church leadership teams to prepare them to be more informed and engaged regarding the continuum of mental health issues.

Treatment

Beacon of Light has a collaborative agreement with The Center for Integrative Counseling and Psychology to provide on-site counseling services within Beacon of Light offices. Sharing a foundation of faith, The Center provides licensed, professional therapists who have the ability to address a wide variety of the most common mental health concerns and disorders.

For Churches

Beacon of Light is developing a comprehensive mental health framework and training program for churches around the country to become mental health informed. We believe that for churches to be the best they can be, they must be equipped in ways they never have been before.

“Beacon of Light is helping thousands of churches properly address the mental health crisis..."

The resources available from Churches That Heal have been invaluable in my ministry and in our church.  One of the most difficult parts of ministry for me is knowing when and where to refer when an issue is too big for me.  Dr. Cloud’s video on the subject has changed the way I help people and refer to professionals. We are a better, healthier, stronger congregation because of the Churches That Heal resource.
