Stress management is a big challenge during this Coronavirus pandemic but Catholic Charities can help you find healthy ways to cope.
The non-profit organization’s counseling department is forming small, virtual support groups with 10 or fewer people to help them discover healthy methods of managing stress. An experienced member of the counseling team will conduct the groups through Zoom. Since money is tight for many people due to the COVID-19 crisis, Catholic Charities wanted to provide affordable support groups, said Anna Smith, Catholic Charities senior program manager. It costs $15 for six weeks of support groups.
Catholic Charities’ professional team also delivers individual, virtual counseling for emotional, verbal, sexual and physical abuse survivors, as well as to help adolescents who have behavioral issues, people with anger management, anxiety, communication problems, depression, diverse, grief, loss, HIV/AIDS and other problems.
If you would like to participate in the group sessions or obtain individual counseling, call the counseling team at 602-749-4405. The individual counseling sessions are based on a sliding scale for people paying by credit card or they are covered by the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), the state’s Medicaid agency.
