Mental health, journeying as a friend

with Pascale Van Uffel


If we are not struggling with our mental health ourselves, we all know someone close to us or a friend who is. Mental health is so vast, complex and diverse.  It is subject to so much awkwardness, inappropriate words and hidden suffering. We are often feel helpless against these illnesses, we do not know how to accompany and be a disciple of Jesus for those who suffer mentally and emotionally.


Pascale Van Uffel is a psychologist and she will first help us understand the different pathologies and their implications (professional follow-up, medication or not, etc.). We will then look at ways to accompany these people as a family, friend, manager or member of the same community. We will discover attitudes to adopt or to avoid as well as tools which are at our disposal to journey together.
