Bishop of London’s Faith and Mental Health Lecture - London
@St Bartholomew the Great, West Smithfield London, EC1A 9DS
The Bishop of London, the Rt Revd and Rt Hon Dame Sarah Mullally DBE, is not only one of the most senior Bishops in the Church of England but former Chief nursing officer for England. As such, the Bishop is uniquely placed to offer important insights and vision for the interplay between faith and health for Christians, the church and for the communities they seek to serve.
In this lecture Bishop Sarah will explore how we can lower the barriers to honesty in talking about mental health. Addressing questions of vulnerability and shame she will ask what cultural shifts are necessary if those who are struggling are to find a voice. Can we be liberated from the fear of judgement and repercussions in the workplace and our communities? How can we make a step-change in normalizing conversations around mental wellbeing? What particular contribution might faith communities make in responding to what has been called a mental health epidemic?
Resilience Film Screening with Panel - Hull
@Trinity Methodist Church 247 Newland Avenue Hull HU5 2EJ
Resilience: The Biology of Stress and The Science of Hope is a one-hour documentary, directed and produced by Robert Redford’s son, James, that delves into the science behind how extreme or prolonged stressful experience in childhood can affect brain development, leading to health and social problems across the lifespan. This is now recognised to be a leading cause of many physical, mental and social issues.
The film has been used in communities around the world to raise awareness of adverse childhood experiences and initiate discussions and actions to prevent and mitigate their effects.
If you are a parent, professional working in education, children’s services or mental health, a counsellor or trainee counsellor, law enforcement, health services or just interested in the impact of adverse childhood experiences, then this film is a must see for you.
