ESSEX MIND AND SPIRIT
We are a community organisation that supports people by raising awareness of spiritual care in Mental Health recovery.
An important part of this work includes promoting respect for people’s beliefs and practices from faith traditions other than their own. This includes those beliefs of people who claim no religious affiliation…
We are currently developing our social media platforms. As soon as they’re ready we’ll let you know through our newsletters and the Apps themselves…

What a positive and encouraging day we had on Dec 5th. Around 30 people from a range of organisations came to Hadleigh Farm to hear something of our (TSA / EMS) hopes for the future. As people arrived at the Hub café they were welcomed with refreshments and pastries which led into a brief introduction from me, an overview from Ivor and a short talk by my colleague entitled 'And you call that respectful? -
This was followed by a tour of the site and facilities, with us sharing potential future developments and hopes of working with the community. It was then back to the Hub café for a lunch and plenty of time for sharing and getting to know one another.
There was some very positive feedback which reflected both enthusiasm for the day but also the potential for future partnership working, and already further links are being made including an invitation to Southend Mosque from the Imam, which I hope to arrange in the not too distant future.
On the day we had around 20 people sign up as interested in becoming part of the cluster and we will be holding our first meeting proper on Tuesday 31st January which will explore what the cluster needs to be, to do and how it could best function.
Below are some pictures so if unfamiliar people can get a sense of the site, which of course doesn't cover every aspect.
