Faith + Mental Health is a mental health advocacy organization located in Kalamazoo, Michigan that was officially founded in 2021 by D'Andrea M. Bolden. However, she has been operating in this space for over 6 years and working in the Kalamazoo community for more than 15 years.
Our mission is to bridge the gap between faith and mental health by providing quality trainings, community and professional partnerships, educational events, writings, and videos. We are strong believers in holistic health and will continue to advocate for integrative holistic mental health care for everyone.
Our vision is to see a safe space where faith and mental health can operate together for the good of the individuals in need of traditional or integrative professional services down to the community level. Ultimately, we will continue to work aggressively to kill stigma and misconceptions that disproportionately cause minorities and the faith-based community to shun professional mental health services.
