HOPE and HEALING for those suffering from mental illness

HOPE and HEALING for those suffering from mental illness

As Sisters of Notre Dame, we hold those suffering from mental illness close to our hearts. We join the bishops of California in these sentiments: “As pastors and bishops, we are deeply concerned with the heartbreaking prevalence of mental illness in our society and are taking action to address this tragic form of misery and sorrow. Though not as apparent and familiar as general medical problems, mental illness is equally important and is uniquely challenging and burdensome. It strikes deep within the human soul, impacting and influencing a person’s thoughts, emotions and behaviors; thereby affecting all aspects of a person’s life—work and rest, family life and relationships, prayer and one’s relationship with God.”
