Inward and Outward: New Initiatives For Shalem
I am pleased to highlight two recent developments at Shalem. They both speak to simultaneous impulses or directions that we experience at Shalem: looking outward to extend our ministry of seeking the Gospel in a mental health context, and looking inward to improve our outward practice.
We are seeking to move in these two directions within our organization, with our clients and participants, and with our partners across communities and the mental health field. Both of these directions tie into one of the three focus areas of Shalem’s Strategic Plan, namely to become more and more intentional about our engagement with the community and among ourselves.
