Mission, Vision, and Values

Our mission, vision, and values form a foundation for all events and activities of the organization.

Why Are We Needed?

The mental health community works together to meet needs. But what makes us unique from other organizations? Although stigma of mental illness has lessened over the years, the need for education, information, and support continues. 

Mental Health Connect Team

Passionate and discerning individuals serve on the board of directors. As a working board, they are involved in the planning and implementation of nonprofit activities.


Caroline S. Cooper, co-founder and executive director, first felt a call to mental health ministry in 2005 as a result of her personal experience with mental illness and trauma. She began a 10+-year journey that led to establishing this nonprofit for mental health awareness. In April 2018, along with her friend and colleague, Jane Alexander, Mental Health Connect of Missouri (previously known as In God’s Corner Ministry) became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Their first event was held at the end of that month.
