Are you experiencing mental health challenges—or is someone you care about?

Are you a member of the clergy, or a parish staff or ministry leader?

Are you a social work or mental health professional?

Mark your calendars for Nov. 15, when the San Diego Diocesan Mental Health Network and the Office for Social Ministry join together to bring you “Mental Health Wellness and the Church,” a free, half-day educational and inspirational event.

Rev. Charles Sikorsky, the president of the Institute for Psychological Sciences, will be the keynote speaker. Based in Arlington, Va., the IPS is a Catholic graduate school of psychology dedicated to the scientific study of psychology with a Catholic understanding of the person, marriage and the family.

Luke Maxwell, creator of UcantBerased.com, a teen suicide prevention ministry, and Marie Revere, mental health advocate at Solana Beach’s St. James Parish, will give testimony about their experiences. The San Diego Diocesan Mental Health Working Group will hold a panel Q&A, and our own Linda Arreola and Kent Peters will explain the mission of the Diocesan Mental Health Ministry Network.

By engaging trained and supported lay leaders in the service of families in the parish that are experiencing mental health challenges, we hope to develop partners who will join with clergy andparish staff in this important ministry. 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 will find wholeness, and together we’ll end the stigma that still endures when mental health is challenged.

“Mental Health Wellness and the Church” will take place 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Nov. 15 at St. Michael Catholic Church’s Holy Family Center, 15546 Pomerado Rd., Poway, 92064.
