I and the other founding members of Our Minds Matter have come across unhealthy practices and or held beliefs in some groups, which often explain that mental illness is a result of the poor practice of faith. In our view, this is not the case and is a clear misunderstanding from people; faith has been misinterpreted to explain Mental Health.
We are here to change that.
We have delivered both the licensed half-day and two day Mental Health First Aid courses to adults and youth residents across Bedfordshire. Many individuals from varying faiths and backgrounds attended these valuable training sessions.
With the help of our fantastic volunteers and supportive partners, the charity has led an incredible journey up to now, and we will use this momentum as a springboard towards our endeavours over the coming years.
We hope you will join us!
