Mental Health Ministry

Mental Health Ministy

 “Christ took all human suffering on himself, even mental illness. Yes, even this affliction, which perhaps seems the most absurd and incomprehensible, configures the sick person to Christ and gives him a share in his redeeming passion.”

-Pope Saint John Paul II

 

Call, chat, or text 988 to speak to a local Crisis Specialist if you or a loved one are experiencing a mental health, drug, or alcohol crisis.

 

Mission: Holy Family’s mental health ministry lives our faith by journeying with others. The ministry’s focus is on coping and caring, awareness of mental health, advocacy, and walking with individuals and families on their journey.

 

Our goal is to provide a place to speak out and be heard in a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental environment, where isolation and stigma dissipate as supportive community is created.
