We have teamed up with Faith Action
to come up with a multi-faith pledge for places of worship to be friendly.
Mental health problems are common and will affect 1 in 4 people in the UK during their lifetime. Faith groups and faith-based organisations have the capacity to provide places of support and acceptance for those struggling with mental health problems. Below, we have gathered articles, tips, guidance and other resources to help your faith group make some practical and positive steps towards becoming more mental health friendly.
Friendly Places launched on 4th March 2014 with a special event in London featuring noted speakers involved with mental health and faith. The following video message from Norman Lamb MP, Minister for Care and Support, was presented at the launch.
