The Catholic Mental Health Project was set up in response to concerns raised during the initiative “Listening 2004: My Family My Church”.
The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales established a Mental Health Project in response to concerns raised during the initiative “Listening 2004: My Family My Church”.
The aim of the Catholic Mental Health Project is to offer support and resources to local Catholic communities as they respond to those facing mental health challenges.
The project identifies and highlights good practice in pastoral care for those with mental health needs, their families and carers.
This, in turn, has led to the formation of a network from within the Catholic community in England and Wales of people and groups with a special interest in mental health support in their local area.
This vital work if funded by the annual Day for Life collection – taken in parishes in England and Wales – and, as such, this project is generously supported by Catholic parishioners.
