Pastoral Care and Mental Health Resources
An Introduction to St. Paul’s Pastoral Care Resources Booklet
The mission of St. Paul’s Pastoral Care Ministry is to create a culture of mutual care as the heartbeat of Christ’s Body. We do this by embodying and making known Christ’s abiding, compassionate, and healing presence in our love and support for one another. We seek to live faithfully into St. Paul’s command to “rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep” (Rom 12:15).
In addition to praying and caring for each other, we are also called to ensure that members of our parish family connect with the professional help and support they need in times of crisis or difficulty. This booklet is a referral resource for mental health and social services available throughout Metropolitan Richmond to meet such needs. In this booklet you will find information organized under the following resource categories:
- Crisis Hotlines, Warm Lines, & Texting Resources
- Therapy for Children, Individuals, Couples & Families
- Addiction & Recovery Support
- Senior & Homebound Care
- LGBTQI+ Support
- Further Resources
Many thanks to the team of mental health professionals at St. Paul’s who faithfully compiled this resource booklet: Dr. Kia Bentley, Debbie Cole, David Hoover, Dr. Susan Jones, Dr. Jennine Moritz (Sherrill), and Johnna Showers.
