Catholic Charities of South Carolina offers a chatbot for everyday stresses and anxiety; it is anonymous, available 24/7, and it’s free!

Let us not forget that, along with the indispensable psychological counseling, which is useful and effective, Jesus’ words also help. It comes to my mind and heart: “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

Let us pray that people who suffer from depression or burn-out will find support and a light that opens them up to life.

— Pope Francis
