Did you know, according to the Surgeon General, one in every five Americans experiences a mental disorder in a year.

In a statement to the United Nations, the Vatican said, “Spiritual care is an important component of integral care, that considers the person in his entirety, and that unites the human body, with its psychological, social and spiritual dimension.”
