Mental Health Matters 2015

This amazing conference took place over the weekend of 5th to 7th June at Cliff College. The aim was to provide information and help to equip churches to respond to the needs of the mentally ill. It was attended by 120 delegates, and there were speakers and workshops of many subjects including the mental health of the young and the old, surviving depression, safeguarding, chaplaincy, creating supportive churches, substance misuse, and many more. Everyone contributed in a positive way, and the whole conference left us inspired and enabled.

During my year as Vice-President I have made mental health awareness a major focus. This was a great highlight and climax to all of that. Many thanks to members of the Discipleship and Ministries Learning Network for working so hard to bring it all together.
