Mateur Bringing the Mental Health Conversation to the Heart of the Church A KST SHORT COURSE

Course Introduction

Mental Health was seldom out of the headlines during the pandemic. With awareness growing, many churches have felt challenged to respond. In creating The Sanctuary Course, Sanctuary Mental Health Ministries have created a resource which offers an accessible way into the conversation for every church member. Drawing from expert thinking on mental health, voices of lived experience, and grounded in theology, the course is has seen around 20,000 participants in the UK over the last year.

In this webinar, we will look at mental health in the current context of pandemic recovery, a model for understanding mental health challenges, reflect theologically on the nature of stigma, and discover how we can all have a role in creating a safer community.


Corin Pilling will be our facilitator. Corin is Director of Sanctuary Mental Health in the UK, a charity equipping churches with resources and training to support those living with mental health challenges. Corin completed a twenty year career working with homeless people, before learning community development approaches to support churches in their ministry. He has led the work of Sanctuary since 2020.
