Healthy Mind and Spirit
Caring for your emotional, spiritual and mental wellbeing.
Taking care of your wellbeing is an important part of healthy living. We understand that there are times when life events can be stressful, which is why we offer a range of services to assist with your individual concerns and circumstances.
Our pastoral care services focus on healing, reconciling and sustaining the soul in times of loss or grief, and during stressful and difficult times.
We provide dedicated pastoral care coordinators who offer guidance and spiritual comfort to anyone who needs it regardless of background, faith or belief system. We can come and sit with you and listen, take in what you have to say, and bring empathy, understanding and comfort to your situation.
You can access this service as part of a Government funded package. Our pastoral care team is staffed by coordinators and volunteers, specifically trained to help you.
