- Mental health
- Beliefs, Faiths and Religions
This free, 8-week course aims to provide Black faith and religious groups or communities with an understanding of mental health issues, and help you improve your spiritual and pastoral skills for supporting people experiencing mental health difficulties.
You will be provided with opportunities to meet mental health professionals, to find out more about their role and how the mental health system works. Group sessions will help you develop skills around active listening and how to engage with, and support congregation members who may be experiencing difficulties.
We will also discuss wider issues such as stigma, mental health inequalities, barriers to accessing help within the Black community, and creative ways that we can work together to improve this using culturally tailored approaches.
Please note - the course is only open to members of faith groups in Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham and Croydon
