The Mental Health Ministry provides education and awareness to the parish community on issues related to mental health to breakdown the social stigma of having a mental illness, to provide information and local resources where help can be obtained, and to provide emotional and spiritual support.
Mental Health Mondays
A monthly gathering…Starting May 20th from 7-8:30pm
Each year, 1 in 4 families are affected by mental illness. As Christians, we need to help and support individuals, family members and friends who have this illness. After last year’s five-night informational program, a number of those who attended expressed interest in an ongoing discussion group. To meet this need, our parish will be holding a meeting on the 3rd Monday of each month from 7:00 to 8:30pm.
A different aspect of mental illness will be discussed each month from a practical and spiritual standpoint. There is no cost to attend. Workbooks will be available to facilitate the discussion.
