What is chaplaincy and spiritual care
Chaplains work alongside people facing difficult and life-changing experiences, including living with mental health issues, and they understand the stresses and strains of what that means.
- A chance to talk about your hopes and fears;
- A chance to be listened to, and be heard;
- A chance to be accepted as your are, without judgement;
- Help to make sense of who you are, and where you're going.
For particular faiths, the chaplaincy offers:
- Spiritual guidance;
- Respect for your tradition;
- Contact with the local faith community;
- Support to practise your faith or spiritual tradition.
Who can access the chaplaincy and spiritual care team
- All service users and patients of Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust;
- Carers of the above;
- Staff members.
