The Brent Multi-Faith Forum is hosting online workshops in partnership with NHS CNWL to support faith and religious groups in Brent to:

  • Increase awareness and understanding of mental health
  • Increase awareness of local mental health services; to know how and when to access help
  • Share experiences and challenges of offering pastoral support during the pandemic
  • Reflect and develop best practices within faith settings.

These workshops are aimed at Faith leaders, staff and volunteers serving their faith communities in Brent. Please come prepared to learn and share from each other.

‘Not since the Second World War have we faced such challenges to mental health as created by the Covid-19 pandemic. Furthermore, we have no idea how these threats will play out in the coming years in terms of affecting individuals being able to enjoy lives imbued with meaning, purpose and positive relationships. These are issues integral to what we refer to as ‘faith’ and so it is vital that faith leaders and communities are fully inclusive and maximally supportive. This can only be achieved with the help of ethically motivated training to enhance awareness and skills.’
--Rabbi Dr Frank Dabba Smith
'During the covid-19 pandemic, we have seen a rise in the cases of our congregants experiencing mental health difficulties; ranging from loneliness, social anxiety, grief to suicidal thoughts. As lockdown eases, we envisage the cases to rise further, as people begin to increase their visits to our faith centres and adjust to a new way of living. There is much work to be done to support and ensure that our faith centres are adequately equipped to deal with these challenges.'
- Imam Abdullah Salloo, BMFF Chair
