Christian Shelter offering mental health classes for their guests starting Monday

SALISBURY, Md.- The Christian Shelter will be beginning mental health classes for their guests Monday.

Anthony Dickerson, the Executive Director of the Christian Shelter, said he will be partnering with the Health Department and Lead for Life to make this happen.

He said during this uncertain time guests are facing depression because of unemployment and financial struggles.

So- he wants to help them get through these difficult times- and become more self sufficient.

“We’re hoping that the guests will learn how live on their own and how to whether the storm, so they wont be returning here,” Dickerson said.

“So, we’re going to hit on depression, we’re going to hit on stress, we’re going to hit on suicide,” Dickerson said.

For now the classes will be virtual, but they are planning to have them in person once it’s safe to do so.
