Starting in April and running monthly till July, Caritas Westminster supported a series of mental health awareness workshops in the diocese. These were run by ‘Welcome Me as I Am,’ which raises awareness around mental health problems, and looks at responses that can be made at a parish community level. In particular, these sessions focused on the spiritual needs of those with mental illness, and how they might be addressed. The workshops were put on in partnership with Mind UK, and at each workshop a local representative gave a presentation on mental health and local services, and on ways to stay mentally healthy.
