Five ways to good mental wellbeing & Christianity

Jesus teaches us to call God our Father in the words of the Lord’s Prayer. St John reminds us this is no slip of the tongue as he writes:

"See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are.” JOHN 3:1.

Security in our relationship with our loving creator God is a firm bedrock for sustaining our wellbeing and mental health.

The NHS recommends five ways to help improve your mental health and wellbeing. These five steps integrate well with everyday Christian practice and pattern of faith.

The Five Ways to Wellbeing & Christianity has been designed in collaboration with members of Christian communities, with the support from the Church of England, The Catholic Church, Evangelical Alliance and Churches Together.
