Pastoral Care and Mental Health Care
If you are feeling anxious about COVID-19 and all of the uncertainty that comes with it, you are not alone. Please read our document Help! What’s the difference between Pastoral Care and Mental Health Care? to learn about:
- Pastoral Care, Mental Health Care and Pastoral Counseling
- Signs and Symptoms of Depression
- General Support related to coping with anxiety and depression related to COVID
- Grief-specific guidance
- Coping with Depression
- Helping a friend who is depressed
It is important to know when to get help and that you can do something about depression. We are glad to help, but if you need immediate 24-hour help, please contact the Crisis Text Line online at crisistextline.org (or text 741741) to talk with a crisis counselor. It’s free, confidential and available all hours.
