After the closure of the Northwestern Hospital, Rome (GA) has borne the brunt of care for the mentally ill. The author assessed the needs of Second Avenue UMC by interviewing its members and the mentally ill. She took on the task of studying mental health issues, and how the church can be a part of multidimensional support for them. The author preached, led workshops, and hosted community events to bring awareness and solicit support. She created vision of transformative hospitality and protocols to help the church welcome and include persons with mental health issues in the life of the church.
