Mental Health

We are called by Christ to respond to the mental health needs of our faith community members.

 

Do you need someone to talk to?

If you or someone you know is struggling with a mental health issue, we can put you in touch with someone who can help.

Contact Janet Grove.

The Mental Health Ministry recognizes that…

  • A person's religious faith and spirituality are part of the overall treatment and recovery process.
  • Secrecy, shame, stigma, and denial are among the great problems surrounding mental illness.
  • Mental illness causes great pain and anguish for the individual and the community.
  • Education — of the person, the parish and our community — can alleviate some of this pain.
