- The Catholic Institute for Mental Health Ministry develops, provides and facilitates an effective and responsive network of trained mental health organizers and mental health ministry leaders in Dioceses and parishes throughout the United States. The Diocese of San Diego has an established Mental Health Ministry Network that serves as one potentially replicable example.
- The mental health organizers and mental health ministry leaders will establish mental health ministry teams in their Dioceses and parishes. The mental health ministry leaders and teams will serve as “prayerful companions” for fellow parishioners experiencing mental illness, provide them with referrals, walk with them through the treatment process, and provide parish-wide education on the subject of mental illness.
- The Catholic Institute for Mental periodically requests for proposals to fund Catholic mental health initiatives across the country.
