In 2018 a number of individual Unitarian Universalists who were interested in mental health started meeting and jointly decided that the time was right to form a UU Mental Health Network to work collectively on mental health issues that affect our congregations and society at large. As a starting point, a covenant and a mission were written, and a decision was made to apply to the UUA to become an official “related organization”.
The current status is that we have made the application to the UUA, but our organization is still in the initial stages of forming. We still have yet to decide on issues of organizational charter and governance. We welcome participation by others who may have expertise to get the organization started.
