Welcome to the mental health project website

We are gathering here a range of resources to help increase spiritual and pastoral support for those with mental health challenges, their families and carers.

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales established a Mental Health Project in response to concerns raised during “Listening 2004: My Family My Church”. Day for Life collections generously given by parishioners annually fund this work.

The aims of the Bishops’ mental health project are to:

  • Offer support and resources to local Catholic communities as they respond to those facing mental health challenges
  • Identify and highlight good practice in pastoral care for those with mental health needs, their families and carers
  • Develop a network of those within the Catholic community in England and Wales with a special interest in locally based mental health support
