Caring for One Another’s Mental Wellbeing

Caring for One Another’s Mental Wellbeing Where: St Francis, Poplar Crescent, Dudley, DY1 4AF
When: Wednesday 20th November 2019, 10.30am – 12.30pm

Who’s it for?
Anyone in our parishes, lay or ordained.

When we carry out Jesus’ command “to love our neighbour as ourselves”, we all know ways of offering emotional and practical support to people who have physical illnesses. When it comes to issues of mental health, our own and others, we are often very uncertain where to start, what to do and how to help. This workshop, which will have input from Doug Chaplin, Simon Hill and Emma Pettifer among others, offers a mix of hints and tips, a chance to share and reflect on our own experience, and signposting to where help and training is available.
