Mental Health in our Meetings
£170.00 – £245.00
Meetings need good ways of responding to Friends experiencing mental illness or distress. This course explores the experience of mental ill health, situations which arise and ways to respond. How can we maintain an open and supportive meeting environment? How do we handle our fears and balance the needs of the individual and the wider meeting? This course is helpful for those in Eldership and Oversight roles. We welcome people with direct experience of mental illness, but cannot help with current distress.
Jane Muers is a long-term Quaker and a retired clinical psychologist, currently involved in mental health concerns and chaplaincy.
