A UU Mental Health blog has been created to be a beacon for education about mental health in order to remove stereotypes and prejudice and promote understanding and justice within Unitarian Universalism and beyond.  It is a joint project of the EqUUalAccess Mental Health Caucus and the mental health community ministry of Rev. Barbara F. Meyers.

We provide contributions from a number of different viewpoints from people who are knowledgeable about mental health issues. A special focus will be on ethical impact of mental health issues using a UU lens. Voices from many people will be articulated, and expect that contrasting opinions will be expressed.

We will aim to speak with love, caring, honesty, authenticity, constructively, and when necessary issue a challenge, giving voice to mental health issues in society, especially in marginalized communities.

You can access the blog and sign up to follow it at UUMentalHealth.org.
