Faith and Mental Health Network looks at Grief in Covid Times

The Faith & Mental Health Network meeting on the 7th July looked at grief in Covid times with a particular focus on the legacy that has been left with the bereaved in the light of the changes that had to be made to funerals on account of the pandemic restrictions.

It was really valuable time spent together. And we heard about a report on Funerals and Bereavement Research (Jan ’21):

alongside an upcoming 19th Day of Reflection led by the Chaplains at Cornwall Partnership Foundation Trust. Please contact cft.chaplains@nhs.net

The network welcomes pastoral visitors, clergy, chaplains, mental health practitioners, community volunteers, in fact, anyone who is supporting people who are struggling with  mental health issues. The network is a mutually supportive group of people and offers a safe space to explore issues, share information, resources and best practice; relating  faith to mental health and offering insights to help us help those we are standing  alongside.

Our next meeting is on the 1st September where we will focus on support for Young People

If you would like to like to join the network, learn more or come along to our next meeting, please contact Rosey.Sanders@truro.anglican.org
