Catholic Psychiatric Pastoral Care (CPPC) is a support organization that started in 1987 in response to people suffering with a psychiatric illness. Families and friends also felt a need for the Church to provide a supportive, caring, faithfilled role.
As we continue to reflect on our pastoral ministries and particularly the CPPC ministry, we become increasingly aware that what Jesus and the Church are particularly about is building community, enabling people to be set free from their isolation, to experience belonging in the Christian family, a place each one knows as home, to be brother and sister to each other, to share their own stories which encourage and strengthen one another and which build up the family story.
Catholic Psychiatric Pastoral Care has an extensive training program focussed in the area of psychiatry and spirituality which enables selected volunteers to become trained pastoral carers.
These trained pastoral carers support the six ministries of CPPC:
