Because We Care
Public service can be stressful for those serving; and, for family members and loved ones.
A public servant’s life, unlike those they serve, is an open book. As such, it is often difficult if not impossible to in a healthy way, process pain, disappointment, depression, emotional distress, grief, divorce, anxiety, domestic violence, substance abuse and other personal issues beneath the glare of public scrutiny. Moreover, it is often difficult to share such even with the family pastor.
Public servants don’t get to grieve or hurt publicly; yet often suffer in silence privately. We recognize if unaddressed, these issues could invariably cause significant personal, professional and relational damage. We want to help.
While we do not recommend specific counselors, we do recommend seeking help through the Christian Care Network of the American Association of Christian Counselors.
The American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC) is the leading organization of professional, pastoral and lay counselors. Comprised of nearly 50,000 members, you can readily and easily find help by state, even by zip code.
If you are struggling, the ultimate goal of Christian counseling is to help move you to personal wholeness, interpersonal competence, mental stability, and spiritual maturity.
There is no shame in needing help, we all do from time-to-time. You don’t have to hurt alone.
