Unity Includes Mental Wellness

In Unity, there is wellness – body, soul, spirit and mind. Your mental wellness contributes to the wellness of your entire being, a being that is valuable and worthy of the love and support afforded to all children of God.

“There is no permanent growth that comes from guilt, shame or fear.”
– Rev. Dr. Temple Hayes

What is a challenge but an opportunity to awaken our consciousness in a new way?

Mental health challenges are opportunities to remember that we are always connected to an unlimited Source of abundant good, and that there is plenty of everything we need to alleviate dis-ease. Mental wellness is yours – right here and right now.
