From the Archdiocese of Indianapolis Office of Catechesis
The reality is that stressful and difficult times can aggravate addiction, anxiety, and depression, as well as bring an increase in violence and aggression. Connecting and getting the right support can make all the difference. If you or someone you love is experiencing these things, help is available.
There are many good resources available on our ArchIndy websites for mental health and substance abuse ministries.
Counseling Services through Catholic Charities:

"Quick Dial" Resources...
We hope and pray you will not find yourself in a crisis situation, but here are a few “quick dial” resources that are always good to have on hand:
- Crisis Text Line: "And Then There Were None" ministry has opened up their crisis text line. Get support for anxiety, suicide, depression, self-harm, emotional or sexual abuse, loneliness, even school stress. Text "HOME" to 741741 any time, day or night.
- For people who are gravely disabled or in immediate danger to themselves or others: Call 911 and ask for a CIT Officer
- For people thinking about suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255
Parenting has its challenges in the best of circumstances... add in restrictions, upended routines, and close quarters and we can easily find ourselves ready to snap. There's support here too!
National Parent Helpline: peer support from trained advocates.
