Continuing with our pathways to mental health approach, we seek a deeper understanding of the role of culture in mental health care with a focus on spirituality.

Week 4 - Pathways to mental health 3: people and partnerships

This week we look at how different partnerships can be formed to improve mental health care services and we consider the care-giving roles of professionals and lay people.
