Faith & Mental Health Network

Transformation Cornwall are part of a Faith & Mental Health Network. The network meets bi-monthly and welcomes pastoral visitors, clergy, chaplains, mental health practitioners, community volunteers, in fact, anyone who is supporting people who are struggling with mental health issues.

The network is a mutually supportive group of people and offers a safe space to explore issues, share information, resources and best practice; relating faith to mental health and offering insights to help us help those we are standing alongside.

Network meetings each choose a topic area and often have an invited speaker within that field.

Our May meeting was 'Grief' and our invited speaker was Anne Embury, Suicide Liaison Lead at Outlook South West (Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust).

Our July meeting was 'Bereavement' and our internal speaker was Reverend Andrew Yates, Social Responsibility Officer at the Diocese of Truro.

Our September meeting was 'Young People' and our invited speakers were Karen Bowley & Carina Miles of Kooth.

Our November meeting is 'Restoring Our Communities’ and our invited speaker is journalist/broadcaster/presenter Donna Birrell.
