Who is the Hope and Wellness Ministry for?
It is for everyone. Emotional health and an overall sense of well-being are something we all need, strive for and work toward. As human beings, we are composed of body, mind, spirit/soul. “Like Christ, we are called to tend to the whole person – body, mind, and spirit.” (Hope & Healing, A Pastoral Letter from the Bishops of California May 2018, pg 7) Therefore, as a parish community, we are called to minister to one another’s physical, spiritual, and mental/emotional needs.

What is Mental Health?
Here is a good 2-minute video explaining mental health:
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), mental health is a state of well-being in which an individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.
The WHO stresses that mental health is “more than just the absence of mental disorders or disabilities.” Peak mental health is about not only avoiding active conditions but also looking after ongoing wellness and happiness.
