It’s mental health awareness week, so we are focusing on some of the work pioneers are doing in that arena. Church Mission Society sent out a press release today to highlight this.

As we recently featured on the blog, Mark and Jess Bamping launched Candid (pictured) over the Easter weekend, which is set to become a thriving community hub where people can gather and develop meaningful relationships over a locally brewed craft beer and other shared interests. Helping to combat loneliness and isolation, particularly among men, was an important factor in the thinking behind Candid.

Natalie Roberts, a recent pioneer course graduate, is one of 11 contributors to Courage: Stories of Darkness to Light by author Samantha Houghton. The hope is that this book, all proceeds of which will be donated to The Samaritans, will help people at mental health crisis points in their lives.

Finlay Wood, another CMS pioneer course alumnus, is working for the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust, providing restorative justice interventions for people convicted of crimes on the grounds of diminished responsibility.

We’ll be posting more about Natalie’s and Fin’s work – so watch this space.
