Training day planned on life-controlling issues

Christian charity Mercy Ministries is running a one-day course next month helping people in churches understand eating disorders and self-harm issues ...

Did you know that the UK has the highest rate of eating disorders and self-harm in Europe?

These and other life controlling issues including addiction and depression are often hidden and those dealing with them in churches, youth groups and schools often may not feel equipped to respond.

Blackburn Diocesan Board of Education has arranged for the Christian charity Mercy Ministries to run a one-day course on Saturday 24 January from 10am – 4pm to help people begin to understand the why behind the what.

Whether you are a church leader, involved in pastoral care, a professional or a concerned family member or friend, MPower Training Days are designed to help you understand common warning signs of life-controlling issues, work through key issues and concerns, and equip you with tools and principles that will help you effectively support others whilst also staying free yourself.

Further details also available from Kat Witham.
