Mental Health Awareness workshop

The Mental Health Awareness workshop on 3rd November at 7.30 will be in St Gregory’s Church.

Kathleen Ben Rahba is raising awareness and management of mental health issues for CofE in Suffolk. As mental health issues affect 1 in 4 this session will be of interest to many who face or deal with problems or find them on their doorstep and struggle to know how to cope, advise and help in a Christian way – this session will address all that.

See poster.

Kathleen has been rolling out this workshop to help clergy, elders and congregations to understand and cope appropriately with the instances of mental ill-health that so often come up but for which we often feel ill equipped to deal with.  It promises to be a thought provoking and useful workshop.  Mental health is difficult, so people don’t talk about it so please don’t let mental health be swept under the carpet – help me to get it out there.
