Following the Mental Health seminars taken by Dr Stephen Critchlow last October in Coffee Cure at the Museum, Dr Critchlow is coming back for a short series of follow-up meetings.
At the previous events Dr Critchlow focused on four topics: depression, suicide, addiction, stress and anxiety. He approached each topic first from a professional perspective, and then after a coffee break gave a Christian reflection on each of the mental health difficulties. His reflections focused on themes such as personal worth, purpose, forgiveness and the support that follows from the healing love and presence of Christ and involvement in a Christian community. The follow up meetings will build on this foundation.
Dr Critchlow always insists on working in partnership with the local Christian community, so that people who attend are put in contact with those who will support them if they wish it. Coffee Cure at the Museum was a good location because sitting around tables meant people could relate to each other before, during and after the meetings and for some it could be the beginning of an ongoing relationship. It is hoped that such relationships can be built on at the upcoming meetings.
The meetings will be held on:-
Monday 27 February, 6 March and 13 March, from 7.30-9.00pm, in West Church, Bangor.
These evenings will be titled “Journey into Wellness”
