OMC’s Mental Health Ministry partners with the Diocese of San Diego to offer support for individuals and families that are experiencing mental health challenges.  By interfacing with county, local non-profit, and private mental health providers, you will be introduced to mental health professionals and services able to facilitate your wellness journey.  Our Mental Health Ministers are also available for general consultation and prayer although they are not medical professionals and thus do not offer medical advice.
