Welcome to Mental Health Matters the new web resource on mental health for the Church of England.
This website contains information and resources for parishes, dioceses, chaplaincies and church community groups - and anyone else who's interested - to help improve our work with people experiencing mental illness.
The government has made mental health a priority, stating that "There is no health without mental health".
The Church is well placed to make a significant difference in the area of mental health. We can be a force to end stigma, and we can also be a place of inclusion, welcome and ministry. Mental Health Matters is working to make mental well being a priority in our Churches today - No spiritual health without mental health!
