The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales has established a Mental Health Project to further encourage and inspire us as communities of understanding.
The Catholic Bishops’ Mental Health Project aims to increase spiritual and pastoral support in our Catholic communities for those with mental health challenges, their families and carers. The lead bishop for the Mental Health Project is Bishop Richard Moth.
The project aims to:
Offer support and resources to local Catholic communities as they respond to those facing mental health challenges
Identify and highlight good practice in pastoral care for those with mental health needs, their families and carers
Develop a network of those within the Catholic community in England and Wales with a special interest in locally based mental health support
A Small Grants Fund has been made available by the Bishops for mental health projects to further encourage and inspire us as communities of friendship and understanding. There is no minimum grant limit and it is anticipated that the majority of grants will range from a few hundred pounds to a maximum of £10,000. Smaller projects are encouraged. More Information can be found on our Small Grants section.
