Poster set: Spirituality and Mental Health (Digital Copy)

SHA has produced two new evidence-based infographic posters for spiritual care teams to use during 2023 international Spiritual Care Week (SCW) and beyond.

Poster 1 – Spirituality and Mental Health bridges the concepts of spiritual health and mental health, highlighting the common grounds they share, and differentiating between spiritual struggle and mental illness. Both presentations share a range of symptoms that can sometimes be mistaken for the other. This poster aims to draw attention to shared qualities and symptoms and deepen our understanding of these complex interrelations.

Poster 2 – Spiritual and Mental Health Care locates the place of spirituality in the Biopsychosocial-Spiritual model of holistic care and suggests ways all healthcare staff can play a role in supporting a person’s spiritual health needs, promoting a comprehensive approach to care. In developing a spiritual literacy, we are all better positioned to respond to the holistic needs of those in our health care services.

Using both international and our own research, these resources demonstrate the role and benefits of spiritual care for target audiences including mental health practitioners, health care workers, people with lived experience of mental ill health, and families.
