Community led content proposal for Spirit in Mind conference – 7 February 2019

Spirit in Mind is holding its second annual conference from 9:30am-4pm at St Catherine’s Church in Wakefield after the success of last year’s event in Kirklees. This time we are seeking to give faith-based organisations or individuals the chance to showcase their innovative projects with a slot of up to 15 minutes at the conference. This is a chance to explore and celebrate the role of faith based organisations in promoting compassionate communities through speakers, workshops and creative activities. Book a place on Eventbrite or contact Debby Walker or Angela Barker on 01924 316281/2.

What is GDPR and how will it affect you and your organisation

Spirit in Mind has put together a guide to help faith based organisations understand the new legislation and what it means for you and your organisation.

Friendly Faces – creating a more welcoming and supportive faith community

Spirit in Mind has made available a guide for creating welcoming and supportive faith communities. This was through work that faith action has done nationally. Please help to keep faith based organisations friendly and safe places for people who suffer mental illness.

The Geoff Wilson Award for Spirituality and Mental Health

This year’s conference will see the first Geoff Wilson Award for Spirituality and Mental Health. Geoff Wilson, who is sadly no longer with us, was passionate about Spirit in Mind in its infancy. If you know someone who has contributed to spirituality and mental health over the past few years, please nominate them by sending an email initially to Debby Walker at  pastoral.care@swyt.nhs.uk. An award will be presented at this year’s annual conference.
