During Mental Health Awareness Week, St. Mark’s would like to acknowledge the challenges that face anyone who has a mental health condition (diagnosed or undiagnosed), and those who love them, and offer a solidarity, both within the church community and the wider community. In any given year, 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem. The theme of this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week is relationships which encompasses such a wide range of dynamics – all of which we recognise here.
Tie a ribbon for Mental Health Awareness Week.
During the week, a box of ribbons will be kept on St. Mark’s green, near the wall by Glossop Road. If you, or someone you love, has ever experienced mental un-wellness, we invite you to tie a ribbon onto the rope along the wall. As the number of ribbons grows, it will show that no-one ever suffers alone
St Mark’s Church is open 9-5 weekdays, if you want to sit and find some calm.
