Mental Health Awareness

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and Pastor Susie made a short video about it. You can check that out on the GPC Facebook page or click the link here to catch it on the GPC Youtube channel.

At GPC, we are well connected with organizations that help individuals, couples, and families who want and need to seek help:

NAMI – the National Alliance on Mental Illness provides support groups and free classes to those whose family members suffer from mental illnesses. Memphis website is here.

– During the pandemic, NAMI is meeting virtually on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday evenings of the month. If you would like to know more, please contact Pastor Susie: [email protected].
– Following the pandemic, NAMI will resume their in-person group meetings at GPC on Tuesday evenings. All are welcome.

 

COUNSELING: Samaritan Counseling also has offices here at GPC and their professional counselors provide help for those experiencing:

– Grief and loss
– Marital stress
– Family struggles
– Individual concerns
– Psychological assessments

During the pandemic, Samaritan counselors are providing Telehealth counseling sessions. For information and appointments, call 901-729-3900.

Samaritan Counseling believes that financial limitations should not preclude any person from receiving needed care, so fees for their services are based on circumstances of the individual, income, and family size. Samaritan Counseling’s ability to provide these services are made possible thanks to the contributions from community partners, generous individual donors, and active community fundraising activities throughout the year.
