Abiding Presence has an active Mental Health Ministry Team that seeks to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness and provide support to those whose lives are touched by it. The team is co-led by Pastor Heidi Eickstadt, Pastor for Discipleship, and Karen Johnson.

The team meets the 3rd Monday of the month in the Library and welcomes new members to join them at any time. They walk in the annual NAMI walk in September, host mental health awareness month for the church in May, coordinate a family support group, provide mental health first aid training opportunities and connect with one another about how the church can best serve and support our neighbors.
