When someone is struggling with their mental health, do you know how to minister to them?
Mental Health concerns exist and are prevalent in every community your parish serves. 1 in 5 adults experience mental health concerns, and 1 in 6 teens (age 12-17) reported a Major Depressive Episode in 2020.
From the elderly to the youth, families, and singles, wealthy and impoverished, people face more mental health concerns than ever. As a minister, what is your role? What should you do? What is helpful? What is harmful?
Don’t guess, and don’t avoid it! Silence is a breeding ground for shame. Sister Josephine Garrett, a licensed Catholic counselor and therapist will provide answers to these questions. Embrace your parishioners, family, self, and colleagues with love, compassion, and truth. You will walk away from this course with a plan of action to best receive God’s people in the most challenging moments of their life.
