Opening the door to talk about mental health

3 July 2021, Zoom

A workshop designed to help Quakers talk about mental health in a safe and supportive environment

This 2.5 hour workshop gives Quakers the opportunity to talk about mental health and well-being within their meetings in a safe and supportive environment.

During the workshop we will consider the power of words in relation to mental health and how sometimes words mean different things to different people.

We will look at some real life examples from the Encounters with mental distress book to reflect on the effect of mental distress for the person themselves, the carer/supporter and the meeting who are trying to support the person.

Various scenarios that have arisen in meeting will be considered and we will think and talk about what is and isn't acceptable.

The workshop will end with a time of reflection and worship sharing.

To book a place on the workshop please e mail Bev Smith at and then you will be sent a joining Zoom link.

The booking is on a first come first served basis and we limit the number of places to 20 in order to make the event manageable on Zoom.
