World Mental Health Day 2020

On World Mental Health Day…

Jesus, you came that we might have life,
and might have it more abundantly.

Lord, grant your healing grace to all who are sick, injured or disabled,
that they may be made whole.
Grant to all who are lonely, anxious or depressed
a knowledge of your will and an awareness of your presence.

Grant to all who care for those suffering
wisdom and skill, sympathy and patience.
Mend broken relationships, and restore to those in distress
soundness of mind and serenity of spirit.

Sustain and support those who seek your guidance
and lift up all who are brought low by the trials of this life.
Grant to the dying peace and a holy death,
and uphold those who are bereaved.

Restore to wholeness whatever is broken,
in our lives, in our nation, and in the world.

Lord Jesus Christ, heal us and make us whole.


The effects of mental health problems are huge, and given the challenging times we are living in with coronavirus, it’s more important than ever that we take steps to support good mental health.

The Church of England website has produced some new material to help us reflect on the topic of mental health and to offer some hope and comfort in difficult times.
