Spirituality (SPSIG)

A forum for psychiatrists to explore the spiritual challenges presented by psychiatric illness, and how best to respond to patients’ spiritual concerns.

More than half of service users hold spiritual or religious beliefs they see as important in helping them cope with mental illness, but often feel unable to discuss such concerns with their psychiatrists. Spirituality is a broad term covering everything from the essentially human dimension of personhood to the cultural and religious out-workings of this. It therefore brings together all those involved in mental health care, regardless of creed or culture.
