Wellbeing and Getting Help

Mental Health and Wellbeing

One in four people experience a mental health problem at some point in their lifetime. This is as true for those in the church as anyone else. The effects of mental health problems can be huge. Given the newly challenging times we are living in with coronavirus, it’s even more important that we take steps to support good mental health for ourselves and others, both reactively and proactively.

Web Resources (many specifically tailored for the Covid-19 period)
