The Six Stages of Grief - Niya Case
Mrs. Niya Case will spend two weeks discussing the Six Stages of Grief. During her discussion, she will cover how sudden life changes can ignite mental health reactions that can prove detrimental to our long-term development and sustainability.
Mrs. Case will also talk about proper mental health management when experiencing grief and how to connect with proper solutions and adequate personal support teams.
Pastor & Leadership Pressures - Rev. Jeffree M. Fauntleroy
Being a leader in the pulpit or any organization comes with its own set of pressures. An alarming rate of America's pastors and leaders are battling depression, inevitably making the decision to commit suicide. Without properly dealing with pressures that come along with leading a church or business team, depression and mental illness can have increasingly devastating effects.
Rev. Jeffree M. Fauntleroy, founder and senior pastor of Transformation Christian Church, talks about developing the right avenues and support teams for our nation's leaders.
