Phoenix bishop establishes Catholic mental health ministry
September 14, 2022
CWN Editor's Note: Following a Mass of remembrance for suicide victims, Bishop John Dolan of Phoenix established a Catholic mental health ministry.
“It went from 100 to well over 1,000 names in just a matter of days, and It became apparent to me that truly this was something that was needed,” he said.
Bishop Dolan said that his brother committed suicide when he was 19, as did his sister when she was 27. The new diocesan ministry seeks “to save lives, but also to understand that if lives can’t be saved, we can still communicate and talk and walk with each other.”
