Someone you love is really struggling emotionally. So where do you turn? Who do you trust?
Broken emotions and mental healing are not like fixing a broken bone - you can't just point to what hurts and fix it. So how do you know things are healing properly? HELP!!
The resources listed on this page are those that others in our Parish community have found helpful and better ensure those we love can smile at each day.
You may have to look around a bit to find the health care professional that is right for you - not every professional or technique works for every person.
So we can't technically endorse any of them, we can just pass along resources that others have found helpful and may provide healing.
We list many internet and phone-based community resources and hope that these will be useful to you. While we have made every effort to list resources that align with Christian principles, St. Elizabeth Seton and the Joliet Diocese is in no way associated with these resources, and does not endorse or guarantee references or the sites listed. No favorable inference should be drawn from the fact that a resource is not listed here.
