Emotional Support

Catholic Charities believes emotional support that helps build relationships and mental health is vital to personal success and happiness.

Catholic Charities Philosophy

Focus on Relationships

Our approach focuses on strengthening relationships vital to a successful life.


Our counselors are licensed by the State of Tennessee.


Our programs are available at locations across Nashville to anyone regardless of religion or ability to pay.


Our team includes more than two dozen counselors with numerous specialties from family counseling to childhood trauma.


The percentage of adults who get treatment for a mental illness in a given year. That means nearly 60% who need treatment are not getting or seeking it. We have to change these stats by increasing access to services and eliminating any stigma about seeking help.
