Bridges to Care San Antonio (BTCSA) began October 1, 2020, as an endeavor to train congregations to be companions to those with mental health issues.

Participating congregations form cohorts in geographic proximity and work together to make a difference in the area of mental health, both among their members and in their neighborhoods.

Each congregation is invited to choose up to 10 Wellness Champions (trainees) who take five modules of training equal to 20 hours of work.

After completing the training, each congregation will be known as a Behavioral Health Friendly Congregation, meaning it is a congregation that welcomes those with mental health concerns.

For further information, contact Geri Gregory.

Training is provided free of charge.
