The Duke Clergy Health Initiative is an $18 million, ten-year program intended to improve the health and well-being of United Methodist clergy in North Carolina.

The Clergy Health Initiative's research is the first to examine how to tailor health interventions to clergy. We now know that programs to improve clergy health will succeed only if they address the multiple conditions that contribute to health, especially conditions created by congregations and denominational polities.

This information formed the basis for our pilot program, and for Spirited Life, the Clergy Health Initiative’s wellness program and behavioral health study.
