I wrote to the Sentinel in May to try to get readers to pray for people who have problems keeping proper mental and emotional stability. Obviously, that didn’t work out well because I still see stereotypes associated with people who have mental health issues. I am calling upon fellow believers in our Lord, including the Archdiocese of Portland Pastoral Center and the Catholic Sentinel, to plan a series of events that can prove people who have mental health issues are no different from those who don’t.
