HELD: Showing Up for Each Other’s Mental Health


Passcode: AS

Rev. Barbara Myers will join us to speak about her book, “HELD – Showing Up for Each Other’s Mental Health.” HELD tells stories from Rev. Barbara Meyers’ ministry focused on mental health issues – both how-to stories and how-not-to stories, and gives guidance for congregants in the pews who want to help make a difference. It has a built-in study guide. Her fondest hope is that the book will be used by many congregations and help to make the denomination a friendlier place to people with mental health problems and their families.

Rev. Barbara F. Meyers is a Unitarian Universalist community minister with a mental health ministry based in Fremont, California. She is assistant director of the Life Reaching Across to Life peer support center, the author of a mental health curriculum for congregations, and the book “Held – Showing Up for each Other’s Mental Health” published by Skinner House Books in July 2020. She is the President of the UU Mental Health Network.
