Mental Health

Global issues, such as political unrest, the recent global pandemic, or personal crisis, impacts everyone on different levels. For some, it hits at a deeper level – loss of employment, finances, security, connection with friends and family, and even the loss of loved ones. For many, it has a great impact on our mental health. This is why RockPointe People Care wants you to hear words of encouragement and find resources if you have been struggling in any area of mental health.

Above all, please know that your church family is here to walk alongside you. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you or someone in your life is struggling. There are a lot of people in your RockPointe Church family who are willing and able to help you carry the load.

If you have questions or concerns, we want you to know that you are not alone. If you are uncertain where to begin, don't hesitate to get in touch with the People Care Team at [email protected] for guidance and help. To speak to a pastor, please call the church: 403-851-0011. We also can refer individuals to respected Christian Counsellors for one-on-one support.
