For people of all faiths and none. Recognising a person’s spiritual dimension is one of the most vital aspects of care and recovery in mental health.

Being human, together


The Spirituality Strategy for 2014-2019 will help to make spirituality meaningful for service users and staff. It will also ensure that there are real service improvements as a result. CPFT will ensure that spirituality is embedded in all its care pathways and that the action plans meet the needs of service users, carers and all staff.

What we mean by spiritual

The spiritual dimension tries to be in harmony with the universe, strives for answers about the infinite, and comes especially into focus in timesof emotional stress, physical and mental illness, loss, bereavement and death. This desire for wholeness of being is not an intellectual attainment, for it is no less present in people with learning disabilities, but lies in the essence of what it means to be human. From the spiritual perspective, a distinction can be made between between cure, or relief of symptoms, and healing of the whole person. Life is a perpetual journey of discovery and development during which maturity is often gained through adversity. The relief of suffering remains a primary aim of healthcare, but it is by no means the whole story.

The chaplaincy team offers spiritual and pastoral support to people of all faiths, as well as people who do not have particular beliefs but who would like someone to talk to. The chaplaincy team is supported by community faith leaders and by volunteers. The chaplains are available to everyone - whether you are a patient, relative, friend, member of staff, and whatever your faith. Please ask a member of staff to contact us or, if you prefer, contact us directly.
