********************************************************************************************

Recent research reveals that one out of every four adults and one out of every five youth will experience mental illness as a part of their lives. This translates to over 200,000 people in Ventura County alone! Though this number is staggering, there is genuine hope and help.


The Enlighten Mental Health Seminar is for individuals and families affected by mental illness, churches and their leaders, and anyone who has a heart to walk with others from mental illness towards mental health.  Stay tune for the next Seminar in 2019.


Jesus said: "I am the Light of the world. Whoever follows Me  will never walk in darkness, but will have the Light of life."  (John 8:12)

Our Mission is to educate, encourage, and enlighten individuals and families facing the realities of mental illness.

  • enlighten

    We will enlighten people with resources and action items so that they can address their needs to achieve mental health and wellness.

  • Encourage

    We will encourage through empathy, friendship and support groups. We will do this in an environment of faith and hope, believing that God loves us.

  • educate

    We will educate by teaching about the causes and effects of brain diseases to help equip people to understand how to achieve mental health. We will also seek to remove the stigma of mental illness, its myths and misunderstandings.
