"If Christ and His Blessed Mother were on earth today, he would spend much time among the mentally ill."
(Richard Cardinal Cushing)
Everyone has mental health.
Our mental health is a cumulation of our emotional, cognitive, and behavioural wellbeing, including how we manage any mental health conditions that may be present.
If a feeling is the weather, our mental health is the climate.
Catholic Mental Health Inc is a nonprofit that seeks to build a Church which is more inclusive and supportive of those with mental health conditions and seeks to build a world in which everyone has access to the mental health treatment they need.
We are motivated by our Catholic faith and our belief in the dignity of the human person to support all individuals in seeking mental health support.
We also recognize that Catholics have unique concerns in navigating the mental health discussion, and we help connect you with resources to navigate that discussion.
We provide information on mental health diagnoses and related issues. We also provide information on the intersection between faith and mental wellbeing.
As a nonprofit, we rely on donations in order to provide financial support to people struggling to pay for their mental health treatment.
We connect people with helpful resources to navigate mental health and treatment.
"We clearly proclaim that there is no shame in receiving a diagnosis of a psychiatric disorder and we affirm the need for education in our communities to remove the unjust prejudice and stigma often associated with mental illness."
(California Catholic Bishops, Hope And Healing)
