enabling safe conversations about mental well-being with Rev Rob Merchant

Covid-19 has touched each of us in one way or another and coping with the restrictions imposed to combat the pandemic has brought the issue of mental well-being for both clergy and laity into sharp focus.

Long before the current pandemic we have been concerned about the mental well-being of clergy and laity and the debilitating impact on their health and ability to function effectively in their ministry when things start to go wrong.

Often those affected are uncomfortable or ashamed to admit to being unable to cope and suffer in silence.

  • So how do we recognise the signs that something is not right
  • How do we create safe environments to enable folk to explore the issues affecting their mental well-being?
  • What support can we offer?

During our evening Rob will draw upon his own experiences of living with a long-term mental health condition as a result of developmental trauma, to explore how we can enable safe conversations about mental well-being. The evening will involve reflection, top-tips, honesty, story, and most importantly, hope.
