Mental Health Access Pack

We would like to share the following link, which gives access to information regarding mental health which may help you to engage more effectively with mental health issues.:

This is a free resource which comes from a partnership between Livability, The Mind and Soul Foundation and Premier Life.

The Mind and Soul Foundation educates, encourages and enables the church on mental health issues. Premier Life covers a wide range of issues on health and life. Liveability works with disabled and disadvantaged people and communities across the UK. Together they created this site in response to help and support church lead-ers and those who attend church, with mental health issues.

Their intention is to offer the church a reliable, Christian-based resource which presents the facts on key mental health issues – all in one place. The site also points you to other trusted organisations, including Christian charities working in this field.
