Recognising a person’s spiritual dimension is one of the most vital aspects of care and recovery in mental health.

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.

Spirituality is not confined to the followers of a particular religion. It can be described as “breath”, the essence of human beings or what brings them to life and provides hopefulness, energy, direction and motivation in their lives. The identification of spirituality is, therefore part of the process of seeing and understanding people holistically, and plays an essential role in an individual’s recovery”.
(W Beeson, The Newsletter Aug 06)


Being in hospital may cause a lot of different feelings. 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 hospital 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.
