One in six of us will experience a common mental disorder during our life time. High Street Baptist Church values the whole person, including their mental wellbeing and we want to do something to support people and promote wellbeing.
Over the coming months we will be offering opportunities to explore this topic and offer workshops, creative sessions and talks. More details coming soon.

The Mind and Soul Foundation site contains many useful articls and resources.
The Mind and Soul Foundation state “We believe in a God who loves us AND cares about our emotional and mental health. Our faith and emotions are often kept separate. Mental health is rarely discussed in churches and Christian spirituality is seen as having little to offer the world of psychology. We want to bridge that gap.”
Scripture Union’s Mental Health and Wellbeing resources are intended to help you engage children and young people in supportive and helpful conversation around the challenges that a child or young person may be facing. Their Mental Health Suite has been endorsed by the Mental Health Foundation.
The Church of England has produced 13 daily mental health reflections which take a Biblical reflection each day and then include ‘have a go habits’ each day to boost wellbeing.
This resource has been specifically adapted for the current pandemic and is partially written by Ruth Rice from Renew Wellbeing.
