 Alison Hogger is a former Mental Health Nurse also trained in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, a Therapy which addresses self- harm. She currently runs 'Keeping Health in Mind', a Christian mental health project with three aims: raising the profile of mental health, reducing stigma and reaching out in love.  Keeping Health in Mind is a project which has arisen from the recognition of a growing need within our faith communities, that of learning about and talking about mental health difficulties. The project produces literature to help demystify mental health, runs 'The Life Course', a six week coping skills course, and is growing a Christian fellowship around issues of mental well being. Alongside this, Alison is training for Pioneer Ordained Ministry within the Church of England, at St Mellitus college in London
