Mental Health Chaplaincy
A companion presence in the city for those living in homelessness, mental illness, addictions and trauma.
Our mission is to provide: * Outreach to our neighbors on the streets who struggle with a major mental illness, trauma/ abuse and chemical dependency. * Spiritual care with persons in hospital and outpatient programs where no other chaplain is available; support to families seeking care and services for a family member facing a serious mental illness. * Companionship training for chaplains, health workers, clergy and laity; working with congregations to develop ministries to welcome, serve, and support individuals and their families facing the journey with serious and persistent mental disorders. * Workshops, consulting, and public programs in locations around the U.S. to bring the message of the Chaplaincy and assist others in developing mental health ministries. * Advocacy and education for readily accessible mental health care that attends to the whole person, including one’s physical, psychological, social, and spiritual well-being.
