What is a Quaker approach to mental health? In this course we explore mental health and spirituality, asking why mental health is important to Quakers. We consider our understandings of mental health issues, and reflect on how Quaker meetings value and support people who are in distress. We will use Quaker and other writings, games and videos, and have discussions using online forums and three live sessions.
This course is for everyone, and is of particular interest to those with lived experience of mental health problems, who care for someone who has mental health problems, who have a professional background in mental health, or a spiritual nurture or pastoral care role in their meeting.
The course won't be a therapeutic space and in an online course we can't offer individual support – please make sure you have sufficient support close to hand. This course won't give basic information about mental health, but we will offer links.
