Sue is a qualified Mental Health First Aider and an accredited Mental Health First Aid training instructor with Mental Health England.
Our Mental Health Awareness session is a full day’s training covering the sensitive issues around mental health, addressing the stigma, uncertainty and the fear that is often present in some of our churches.
We seek to help churches, in a safe and nurturing environment to talk through mental health from a biblical perspective and we facilitate open conversations around some of those concerns and apply principles in ways to support and to help and encourage.
We cover topics such as:
Bipolar and Psychosis
Poor Mental Health in Church Leaders
There will be times when our leaders, who carry the load of pastoral work and ministry, experience a mental health issue. They will undoubtedly need support and understanding if they struggle with their mental health. Unaddressed, this can lead to breakdown, sickness absence, loss of work, termination of contract and potentially put family at risk of losing their livelihood and their home.
We can provide support to church officers who may need some guidance around managing the sensitivities if a pastor/elder or church officer’s mental health may be having an impact on the wider church, themselves or their family.
