Across the Room: A Conversation on Mental Health

Aug4_Sermon.jpg

Whether you're scrolling through social media or watching the evening news, it's easy to see that our nation is facing quite a few challenging issues these days. How do we deal with mental health? How should we respond to the environmental crisis? What is the best way to deal with the issue of homelessness? And, how do we make peace in a time of global violence?

Unfortunately, many conversations with friends, family, and co-workers can be polarizing when these issues arise. These interactions can leave us standing on two different sides of the room. What would it look like to walk across the room and learn their story as a way to begin a healthy conversation? Join Pastor Sarah Heath on Sunday at 10am as she sits down with Reid Walton, a licensed therapist, to kick off the series. 

REID WALTON is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist at Journeys Counseling Ministry, and he is passionate about helping create intimacy in marriages, helping families and individuals walk through the many seasons and difficulties of life. He currently has his Masters of Science in Clinical Psychology from Vanguard University and received a Bachelor's of Science in General Psychology at Biola University with a Minor In Biblical Studies. In addition, Reid is an Adjunct Professor in Psychology at Vanguard University teaching courses in General Psychology and Behavior Modification. Along with his work at Journeys, Reid has over 6 years experience working with individuals and families in crisis as a Social Worker and Crisis Response Clinician serving Orange County.
