Session 3: Faith, Finance and the ‘new normal’

Session 2 - Faith, Finance and Mental Health

Each major Faith has different teachings on Mental Health. What are these? How does money impact our wellbeing?

In July, a diverse group of us gathered online to hear speakers from across faith groups talking about how their attitudes to mental health, wellbeing and money are influenced by their faith teachings.
