MindMatters COI summary research report now available
This report shares the findings from the survey with the response to each question in the appendices.
As you will see, our findings show that we need to prioritise four areas:
- Promoting connections
- Reducing stigma
- Exploring the role of clergy and the supports and training that would be useful for them
- Exploring the role of faith in promoting positive mental health
Now that we have a better understanding of the Church’s attitudes and awareness of mental health, we are developing our next steps. With this in mind, we are going to roll out mental health awareness training in late January, with an invitation to apply for seed funding opening in late spring.
We would like to thank you all for your support with the MindMatters COI project in 2021 and look forward to working with you in the New Year. We wish you all a very happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year.
