MENTAL HEALTH POLICY 2019

 

We the PCC of St Mary's West Chiltington adopt this Mental Health policy.

The policy will be renewed annually by the PCC.

 

Advised by Elle Weaver who is the mental health Facillitator for ' Together in Sussex'

(joint venture between Diocese of Chichester and the Church Urban Fund)

 

Within society there is still a widespread stigma attached to Mental Health issues.

 

MENTAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING POLICY.

 

 

We at St. Mary's are aware of Mental Health issues and well-being issues and will seek advice

if and when any issue arises in our parish.

 

We are a friendly, open and welcoming Church and encourage the congregation to talk to us

about any issues on which they have concerns.

 

Our Church has a Safeguarding Officer, Mrs Pam Wells, who attends all training set out

by the diocese and has the knowledge and training to seek help and advice for anyone

who identifies that they need any sort of assistance.

 

We at St Mary's provide a totally 'no strings attached support' for those that may need or ask for help.

Safeguarding Officer.
