IMAGINE A COMMUNITY WHERE MARGINALIZED PEOPLE FEEL SAFE SEEKING HELP FROM THEIR SPIRITUAL LEADERS AND MENTAL HEALTH PROVIDERS

Project Trust is an exploratory program that aims to close the gap between spiritual communities, historically marginalized groups, and mental health providers. Kaiser Permanente of Northern California is supporting the program through a grant to the San Francisco Theological Seminary.

The initial phase of Project Trust will focus on African American individuals in faith communities, in Oakland and San Francisco including sexual and gender minorities (LGBTQ+) in Christian congregations.  Project Trust is currently reaching out to pastors, community leaders, and mental health practitioners in Bay Area interested in participating in the program.
