This page contains information and resources to assist churches as they support people experiencing mental health and emotional wellbeing challenges. The Hub contains a range of government funded and other community resources, as well as resources with a Christian emphasis – marked with a 🕊️ symbol.  

It is our prayer that this space will resource you to serve your congregation with wisdom, compassion and servant hearted love by promoting mental health and wellbeing.

Speaking with someone can be a crucial step in the healing process when a person is experiencing mental ill-health and emotional wellbeing challenges. It can help the person feel heard, supported, and empowered to take steps towards better mental well-being.
