Spiritual Care & Recovery

There is a considerable body of evidence to show that faith can be a major factor in supporting recovery in mental health.

Becoming aware of your own spirituality, whether it is based on a religious tradition or not, offers a new perspective for future living. Recovery and wellbeing are about the whole of life, and spiritual care of ourselves and others addressing our deepest motivations and concerns.

This course aims to introduce the concepts of faith and spirituality, their contribution to recovery, and explores some practices, religious and non-religious, which may be used to help you regain and maintain a healthier approach to life.
