Synopsis

Issues relating to mental illness and mental distress have been of particular interest and concern to Quakers throughout the history of the Religious Society of Friends. In this publication developed by the Mental Health in Meetings Cluster of the Quaker Life Network, Friends were invited to share their stories, whether positive or challenging, and the result is a candid collection of encounters, responses, and insights from individuals, carers, and meetings. We hope that it will increase understanding, reduce stigma, and enable people to be more open, more compassionate, and more accepting of those who are struggling with mental illness.
