Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. 

Last year, we responded to over 4,000 New Hope Crisis Hotline calls and over 1,000 Counseling sessions (virtual and in-person). This year, we were blessed with a sizable donation to support the counseling services offered through Catholic Charities of Orange County. To provide a well-rounded and sustainable program that will enhance our communities’ well-being for the years to come, we would like to officially announce that we have combined our New Hope Crisis Hotline and Counseling Services Program as one hub for mental health in the Diocese of Orange: the New Hope Counseling Services. 
We will continue to provide the same nonjudgmental crisis intervention hotline and low-cost counseling services to all in our Diocese of Orange and elementary Catholic Schools, and we are excited about the opportunity to find new ways to serve our community.  If you have a few minutes, we kindly ask you to fill out the survey below to assess your parish’s current mental health needs.
Thank you!

A two-fold approach
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted”
Matthew 5:4

Counseling Services:
We offer low-cost therapy for multiple challenges such as anxiety, depression, mood disorders, trauma, relationship challenges, grief and loss, problems at work, parenting challenges, anger management, divorce, and life transitions.

New Hope Crisis Hotline:
We provide, free of charge, suicide prevention and crisis intervention telephone hotline which offers nonjudgmental peer counseling and Godly love to anyone seeking help, 365 days a year, around the clock. No call is turned away and no issue is too small to be heard.
