MindMatters COI research available now – Survey identifies mental health priorities for Church

The findings of the MindMatters COI survey are now available to view online. The summary research report of the Church of Ireland’s mental health project is available here and also on the research tab of the project website https://mindmatters.ireland.anglican.org. This report shares the findings from the survey along with the response to each question in the appendices.

The MindMatters team says that the findings highlight four key areas as priorities for the project:

·         Promoting connections

·         Reducing stigma

·         Exploring the role of clergy and the supports and training that would be useful for them

·         Exploring the role of faith in promoting positive mental health

The MindMatters team is currently exploring the next steps for the project. “Now that we have a better understanding of the Church’s attitudes to and awareness of mental health, we are developing our next steps. With this in mind, we are going to roll out mental health awareness training in late January, with an invitation to apply for seed funding opening in late spring,” they said.

The team would like to thank you all for your support for the MindMatters COI project in 2021 and look forward to working with you in the New Year.
