Mental Health Ministry

Father Matt Spahr, pastor of The Immaculata Parish, participates on a panel along with health-care attorney Jim Rogers, therapist Dr. Lisa Petronis, and Sand Diego National Alliance on Mental Illness CEO Shannon Jaccard, on March 3 at the San Diego Diocesan Mental Health Ministry Network’s first continuing-education training.

About 130 mental health ministry volunteers from 19 parishes spent a portion of the evening discussing various difficult ministry scenarios, with the panel having the final word.

Also presenting at the training were representatives from Mental Health Systems’ In Home Outreach Team and representatives from Telecare Corp’s AgeWise program, serving older adults with case management.

Peter Rohling and Dr. Petronis provided an update on the etherapyfinder.com system, which will provide internal communication for the diocesan mental health network, allow therapists to be designated as having taken a pledge to faithfully serve Catholics in the Diocese of San Diego, and provide an easy way for Catholics seeking mental health professionals to locate therapists who have taken the pledge.

The entire training event was video recorded and will soon be available on etherapyfinder.com. For more information, contact Maria Valencia by email (mvalencia@sdcatholic.org) or phone: (858) 490-8323 or mvalencia@sdcatholic.org
