Reaching out for “R U OK Day?”
Spring is a season we associate with hope and new possibilities. Whilst we pray for positive news on the COVID front we need to be mindful that ongoing isolation, whether enforced by personal circumstance or state authorities, has already negatively impacted the mental health of many in our community.
We encourage you to practice what we at CFT like to call “Kindfulness” – mindful Christian care and connection.
The 10th September marks R U OK Day?, an important day for mental health awareness and suicide prevention – a conversation could change a life. In the lead up to this we have celebrated Spring on our Facebook Page with the “10 Days of Kindfulness”.
If you want to follow up with someone you are concerned about, but aren’t sure how to start, please click HERE for the R U OK? link to get some simple steps to go forward. We asked around the office and came up with a little song with some tips (apologies to the composer of “12 Days of Christmas”)
On the first day of Kindfulness, My true friend gave to me, an open heart and a cup of tea / 2 listening ears / 3 “Melting Moments” / 4 supportive statements / 5 encouragements to act / 6 messages of HOPE / 7 ways to seek help / 8 self-care strategies / 9 positive thoughts / 10 regular “check-ins”
CONNECTION is just so important and it is a core CFT Value.
Our CFT Vision – To Connect people to God & each other through Experience
When you next plan to travel, plan to experience the CFT Difference; enjoy a holiday where like-minded people can truly connect, feel included as part of our CFT Family where you are always treated with loving Christian care – Kindfulness in action! CONNECT * PRAY * EXPERIENCE * SHARE * MAKE MEMORIES
We mightn’t be able to meet up travelling at present but we still need to be there for each other.
As 1 Thessalonians 5:11 entreats us – “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up”.
