March 28, 2021

Angela Kumah leads a sensitive discussion on the capacity of faith groups to support individuals experiencing mental health issues, especially as a result of the Covid 19 pandemic.Guests include Nikki Tapper & Roger Moore. 

Covid 19 quarantine and social distancing policies have resulted in everyone living in a world where many of us are separated from our friends, family, and many of our usual support systems. This can lead to an increase in anxiety and wellbeing issues.

The key areas of concern in terms of resilience are:

The Covid 19 Virus
The 2020 Lockdown period/social distancing
Health inequalities for BME communities and systemic racism against the Black community
The recession
