The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales’ Face to Faith initiative holds roundtable discussions with people of different religions on subjects of common concern. In connection with the Catholic Mental Health Project, they recently brought together those that have an expertise and interest in matters of mental health and well-being, and you can listen to the podcast below.
The principal question was this…..
What aspects of your religion – teaching, wisdom from scriptures and so on – would offer help to a person living with mental health challenges? How are they supported in the faith and would any of this also be helpful or accessible to someone outside the faith?
The podcast contains four very interesting perspectives from four of the world’s religions; Sikh, Hindu, Bahai and Muslim.
