Join us for our next forum meeting that will be looking at mental health and the work that faith groups are doing to support their communities. Faith groups have long been a source of support for people way before the pandemic, but Covid-19 has highlighted just how much work is being done to help people that face mental health issues.
This support takes place in many different forms from coffee morning sessions to keep people socially connected, befriending calls to combat loneliness and isolation and more structured activities such support groups for people with depression and bereavement support.
This forum meeting will consider:
- How we can highlight the tremendous work that faith groups in the borough have been doing, particularly during the pandemic.
- How faith groups will have a big part to play as we emerge from the latest lockdown into the ‘new normal’.
- How statutory services can find out about the unique role faith groups play for people with mental health issues.
Panellist: Najnin Islam, Project Manager, Community Mental Health Transformation Programme, East London NHS Foundation Trust
The meeting will also have an update on the work of THIFF from Revd Alan Green, chair of THIFF and an update on hate crime statistics from Met Police, along with the opportunity for attendees to share details of their work, projects or events.
Come along and join the discussion and share your experiences, thoughts and ideas.
