THE FAITH AND MENTAL HEALTH PROJECT
The Project and How You Can Help
Designed and led by Lived Experience Mental Health Campaigner, Lindsay Robinson and NI theologian, Andrew Cunning, The Faith and Mental Health Project is an exploration of the relationship between mental health and faith communities here in Northern Ireland.
We want to help churches and faith communities better serve their members and to do that, we need to have a good look at how mental health is currently being supported within these communities. Do churches have a positive effect on their members’ mental health? Is the Bible used in some ways that hinder rather than help? What could be done better in faith communities to ensure people who are struggling get what they need?
We are seeking answers to these questions and we seek your help!
If you are a member of a church, a casual attender, someone who has totally walked away, you could really help us out by filling in our survey below.
We are carrying out face to face interviews beginning in January 2021 with people with lived experience. If you would like to be interviewed you can get in touch with us below.
