Mind Matters calls for contributors for Voices project

Mind Matters calls for contributors for Voices project

The MindMatters COI mental health awareness initiative is developing a central hub for conversations on positive mental health for the Church of Ireland and the wider community across the island of Ireland.

An important part of this mission is the development of the Voices section of the website where the project can provide a platform for the MindMatters COI community, which includes members of the Church of Ireland and others with an interest in mental health issues, to share their advice, opinions, and experiences of mental health. Through this, the project hopes to promote positive mental health and connections and to work to reduce stigma and isolation. 

The first Voices post is from the Revd Claire Henderson, from the Diocese of Derry and Raphoe, who shares her experience with complex post–traumatic stress disorder (C–PTSD).  This can be read here: https://mindmatters.ireland.anglican.org/voices 

Please keep an eye on the Voices part of the website for more contributions.  If you would like to contribute a written piece as part of the Voices Team, please contact Caoimhe Leppard at mhp@rcbdub.org for more information.
