Living in Finite Experiences (LIFE) Ministry promotes mental health awareness throughout our community. The LIFE Team hosts monthly meetings to plan and schedule opportunities for awareness, prevention, and support as well as ways to partner with other community organizations. Each year, LIFE Ministry's goal is to host and/or support mental health awareness events each month. The team also distributes a monthly newsletter electronically as a way to continue sharing ideas, encouraging others, and breaking the stigma associated with mental health. LIFE Ministry is committed to bringing appropriate resources to the forefront on mental health concerns impacting our community while continuing open, honest, supportive, and destigmatized conversations around the topic of suicide.

Celebrate Recovery Clarkston
6300 Clarkston Rd, Clarkston, MI
Thursdays | 7pm
We've all been hurt by people, we've hurt ourselves, and we've hurt others. As a result, every single one of us ends up with some hurt, habit, or hang up. The question we all face is, "where do we go from here?". Celebrate Recovery is a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues that are controlling our lives. Clarkston Community Church is housing all meetings at this time and the address can be found above.
