Oct 5, 2021

Cynthia talks with Susan Zacharia-Sanders today about common misconceptions when it comes to seeking help for mental health.  Mental health is something we all need to work on at times,, and sometimes we just can’t do it alone.  Professionals in this area can be of huge help when it comes to giving us the tools we need to overcome thoughts and behaviors that don’t serve us well.  Having a hard time finding someone?  They also talk about a new directory if you are looking for someone.

Susan Zacharia-Sanders is a licensed clinical social worker and has been providing mental health care for the veteran population for eight years. Her specialties include substance use, suicide prevention, and general outpatient mental health treatment. She has a passion for advocating for mental health resources within Orthodox parish settings, particularly in ethnic parishes where the stigma of seeking care is prevalent. She currently serves as co-chair for the Needs Assessment Working Group with the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops' Mental Health Task Force. Prior to doing so, she served, for 6 years, as the Diocese of South-West America Secretary for the Department of Counseling Services with the Malankara (Indian) Orthodox Syrian Church.  She attends St. Makarios the Great Orthodox Mission in Chicago, where she lives with her husband. In her free time, she enjoys baking, journaling, reading, hosting and walks to the lake.
