Mental Health is a big problem for many people. Around one in four people will need treatment for a mental health issue at some stage in their lives. Those struggling with depression, anxiety or addictions often wish they could obtain clear and relevant information and ask questions about what deeply bothers them. Also, carers, professionals and community leaders often wish they understood these problems better, so they can offer practical advice and help to those who may be suffering.

Dr. Stephen Critchlow, a retired psychiatrist, and author of the book, Mindful of the Light-practical help and spiritual hope for Mental Health is coming to Manchester to lead a series of three talks on mental health issues.


These talks will be in THE LIFE CENTRE 235 Washway Road, Sale M33 4BP on Friday 16th Feb (7-30-9-30pm) and Saturday 17th Feb (9-30-1-00pm).

Topics will be on Friday, Anxiety and Stress Management, and on Saturday, Understanding Addictions, and What is Depression and what treatments are available?

Each of the mental health talks in Sale is in two parts. First, there is a presentation of the subject with questions. Then following a short break there is an optional spiritual reflection on the topic concerned. Entrance is free but a small donation is appreciated. All are welcome.

These talks have been held in many towns and cities in the UK and Ireland, and have been much appreciated by the many who have attended previously. Registration is encouraged in advance on Eventbrite for these mental health talks in Sale.
