Mental Health

For concerns about suicide, emotional distress or if you
are experiencing a mental health or substance abuse crisis, call 988 - the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline.


As the Diocesan Mental Health Committee, we stand in solidarity with and raise awareness for those living with mental health issues by offering educational programs, spiritual resources, advocacy resources, and encouraging faith communities to recognize the gifts and talents of all of the people of God.

We pray that all people including those with mental health issues be respected for their inherent dignity as Children of God, feel supported and have a sense of belonging in the greater Catholic Community, especially in the Diocese of Albany.
