Forty people from around the Circuit and further afield, attended a superb mental health awareness day held at Yeadon on Sat Nov 9th.
Revd Andrew Howorth's presentation particularly shone the spotlight on the ways that people with mental illness, either currently or in the past, suffer ongoing discrimination and lack of understanding.
We rejoice in the courageous openness some people in the public eye have shown recently in telling their stories.
Mental illness can happen to anyone. We were encouraged to consider how the church can respond, by being good listeners, providing safe spaces for people to receive support, combating stigma and ignorance, and working for justice and inclusion.
Our thanks go to Revd Andrew for leading such a beneficial day and to Yeadon for their welcoming hospitality.
