Mental Health and Wellbeing

Together in Sussex is helping churches and communities across Sussex respond well to those experiencing poor Mental Health.

Elle Weaver is Together in Sussex's Mental Health and Wellbeing Facilitator; her contact details elle.weaver@chichester.anglican.org

Here are some of the ways we can help you and your group:

a. Check out our resources to help you and others with information and links.

On our resources page we have a Mental Health and Wellbeing information sheet and a booklet for churches on mental health and faith. Have a look here

There are also service resources for churches that can be used on Mental Health Day.

For useful contact numbers have a look at the Go for Green and Green to Go sheet.

b. Mental Health and Wellbeing Contacts

We are developing Mental Health and Wellbeing Contacts in every church across the Diocese of Chichester.

c. A quick check for churches:
• Is my church aware of Mental Health and Wellbeing issues?
• Are we friendly and welcoming?
• What does my church provide to support people?
• Do we provide ‘no-strings-attached’ help for those in need?

Please contact Elle Weaver if you have any questions, ideas or want to share good practice. Elle will send you regular updates so we can keep talking about Mental Health and Wellbeing. It is so important we all work together.

We won’t make things worse by supporting and listening! So let’s make time to talk about good Mental Health and Wellbeing.
