The Mind and Soul Foundation educates, encourages and enables the church on mental health issues. Premier Life covers a wide range of issues on health and life. Livability works with disabled and disadvantaged people and communities across the UK. Together we created this site in response to church leaders and those who attend church, who told us they needed help and support with mental health issues.
We want to offer the church a reliable, Christian-based resource which presents the facts on key mental health issues – all in one place. The site also points you to other trusted organisations, including Christian charities working in this field.
We know there’s plenty of information online about mental health but finding it – and trying to sort the good from the bad – can use up hours that church leaders simply don’t have. We hope the information you find on this site helps you to engage more effectively with mental health issues.
