MENTAL HEALTH

*Sign up now*

Become a Mental Health Advocate in Your Parish

Our first training date is Saturday 7 May, 10 am - 4 pm, via Zoom.

We are well underway with our latest initiative to recruit twenty-five Mental Health Advocates around the diocese. These advocates will not be expected to address every mental health issue themselves. Instead, with a listening ear, they will lend a supportive attitude with the knowledge to signpost to further support and help: they will be someone able to respond.

Spaces are filling fast - could your parishes first Mental Health Advocate be you?

Read more and apply today.

WORLD

By Rt Revd Adrian Newman

Church Urban Fund recently shared Rt Revd Adrian Newman's reflection on the war in Ukraine.

Discussing trauma, evil, action and honesty, read his article here.

Excerpt:

"...Already the images overwhelm us and are seared on our consciousness.

We must, of course, resist evil. We must also love our enemies. That is an almost impossible line to walk at a time like this, but we have to try."
