The most vulnerable people are those suffering through abuse, depression, stress, anxiety, grief and more. These issues do not discriminate, and many are the same people who lost employment, food, transportation, childcare and hope. Caregivers are being stretched in extraordinary ways to meet the demands for counseling services. Continuing education is essential for the wellbeing of both those in need of support and those caregivers who provide it.
Our region will be stronger with professional interfaith counseling and education services available for support through the global pandemic. The healing process is wholistic and that requires one’s faith, family, and future to have hope, stability, and success. What was strong is now fragile and the care for mental health must continue. Since March, our staff has been working virtually in a short-term plan to meet immediate needs. As we move into the days ahead, PPI is poised to offer ongoing telehealth and eventual face-to-face services as viable. It is our hope that both forms of communication and contact will be possible based on the individual needs.
Sunday, September 13th, 2020 the Pittsburgh Pastoral Institute (PPI) celebrates 56 years of service. With a donation of $50 or more before Wednesday October 7th you will automatically receive an invitation to participate in a wellness event hosted virtually on Wednesday, November 4th, 2020 in recognition of Stress Awareness Day! This is intended to be a fun, educational, and resourceful – Stress Relieving – fundraising event!
Donations directly help to fund the Pittsburgh Pastoral Institute's general operating budget critical to our ongoing ability to serve this region across a diverse community. The Pittsburgh Pastoral Institute is Southwestern Pennsylvania's oldest and largest interfaith counseling and resource center committed to treating the whole person, honoring their faith, and recognizing the power of both in the healing process.
Contributions are essential to providing high caliber, spiritually integrated, and multi-faceted behavioral health services; providing timely and effective training for clergy, congregations, and professionals across the human services spectrum; clinical pastoral education and ordination assessment; and strategic partnering with consumers and professionals alike to identify and close gaps in care.
