Mental Health Support

Comfort and build each other up!

Parent Support Group

Support group begins April 6!

Asbury and Kim Bailey will partner once again to host a 6 week Parent Support Group from April 6 through May 18 (off on April 27), 6:00-7:30 pm in room 109. This is a support group for parents of adolescents living with mental health challenges.

Mental Health First Aid

Asbury Family Ministry has partnered with Kim Bailey, M. Ed., ALC, to offer a semi-annual Mental Health First Aid training day. The class takes a deep look at what happens when your child is struggling or maybe even hospitalized with a mental health issue. It can feel lonely and frightening, but it’s a situation that many in our community find themselves in. If you are interested in attending the fall session in August, or want additional information, please email
