be nice. Faith

be nice. is an evidence-based mental health education program proven to change, improve, and save lives.

be a safe haven for those struggling with their mental health.

Our be nice.staff trains liaisons from faith communities to create a movement for mental health and suicide prevention throughout their congregation. Thebe nice. action plan is a tool for the larger faith community to increase positive understanding of mental health, as well as a tool in one-on-one conversations. Any organization can use the be nice. action plan - whether your house of worship is a temple, church, Mosque, Gurdwaras, synagogue, monastery, or other community gathering place, be nice. can help further educate staff, congregants, and community members about mental health, so that they can have the confidence to take action to keep themselves and their neighbors healthy.

For some, faith is the number one protective factor in mental health - make sure that your faith community is prepared with the tools to begin these conversations about mental health, and empower members with resources, hope, and understanding.

Unfortunately, mental health concerns are often ignored by the congregation and community. Worse, some congregations believe that mental health struggles are a sin or demon. Between not talking about the issue or talking about it in ignorance, we miss the ability to bring hope and healing to those and their families who are suffering quietly. It is time to talk and teach. It is time to embrace those who feel alone.
