This week on Thinking Faith Deacon Eric Gurash discusses the ways that spiritual peer support can help navigate mental health challenges and the role our parishes and Catholic social teaching can play in building caring, supportive communities.

Show Snippet: "Our parish communities are uniquely positioned to walk with others, offering prayer-filled support that can rebuild self-esteem and confidence often undermined by experiences of mental illness through a focus on mutuality, self-determination, respect, dignity, equity, and belonging."
