Daily Readings, Daily Meditation, & Saint of the Day
Mental illness is a medical condition that disrupts a person’s thinking, feeling, mood, ability to relate to others and daily functioning. One in five families has a member with a diagnosable mental illness.
The Mental Health Ministry partners with the Diocese of San Diego to offer support for families in the parish that are experiencing mental health challenges. By interfacing with county, local non-profit, and private mental health providers, Catholic families will be introduced to healing professionals and services able to facilitate their healing journeys.
Prayerfully supported by parish lay leaders, and receiving professional care, families strive for wholeness and an end to the stigma that still endures when mental health is challenged.
The Mental Health Ministry and NAMI San Diego partner with the Caregiver Coalition of San Diego to host this FREE conference for those caring for individuals living with Mental Health Challenges. Over 100 individuals supporting loved ones attended this event last year. Great speakers, resource fair, lunch and more. Save the date and keep an eye on the NAMI San Diego’s Newsletter for more on this great event offering support for caregivers of those living with mental health challenges.
