We believe that Our Lord enters into the lives of those living with a mental illness and walks with them at every step, accompanying them in a special way through his living body, the Church. Together, let us build a community of warmth and affection where those who are suffering “will find support and a light that opens them up to life.”

St. Dymphna - Patroness of Mental Illness

Good Saint Dymphna, great wonder-worker in every affliction of mind and body, I humbly implore your powerful intercession with Jesus through Mary, the Health of the Sick, in my present need. (Mention it.) Saint Dymphna, martyr of purity, patroness of those who suffer with nervous and mental afflictions, beloved child of Jesus and Mary, pray to Them for me and obtain my request.

Our Father, who art in Heaven…

Hail Mary, full of grace…
