Clergy members generally make time to answer calls for help, but research shows that they rarely find time to care for themselves. Across denominations and different faith traditions, members of the clergy suffer from higher rates of depression, obesity, high blood pressure, and burn-out (Clergy Health Initiative, Duke University Divinity School).
The Episcopal Diocese of San Diego is working to change that by providing a six-week program called Well to Serve, Well to Lead. Designed specifically for Episcopal clergy and lay employees of the Church, the program addresses challenges this particular population faces on the path to better health. On Tuesday, August 27, all employees of the Episcopal Church are invited to attend a Health and Wellness Summit at Good Samaritan (see calendar item on p. 12). At the summit, which is sponsored by the Episcopal Church Medical Trust, participants will learn how to create a new vision for health and wellness, practical tips to manage stress and five actionable recommendations to promote wellness.
