St. Patrick’s to celebrate the Feast of St. Dymphna with mental health fair

To celebrate the Feast of St. Dymphna, the patron of mental health, St. Patrick Catholic Community in Scottsdale, Ariz. is hosting a mental health fair, May 18-19. St. Patrick’s has long been concerned with addressing issues around mental health and promoting awareness. “Through our behavioral health initiative ministry, we seek to serve as an avenue to provide literacy in mental health, to reduce the stigma of mental illness, encourage conversations around mental illness, and create a safe environment for individuals to share and seek help surrounding their mental illness,” said Eric Tamayo, pastoral associate at St. Patrick Catholic Community.
