Confidential Assistance Program (CAP): A Program of the Archdiocese Benefits Committee (866-641-0791). Aetna Resources for Living offers confidential services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The website offer many services and resources. The Archdiocese Benefits Committee (ABC) wants to provide a full-service benefit that you and your family can easily access whenever you need it. CAP and Aetna Resources for Living are one in the same.

The Clergy Couple Care website's purpose is to provide priests, presvyteres, and clergy couples resources for navigating the many challenges they face in regard to personal self-care, marriage and family life. Thus, you will find resources specifically for the priest, others for the presvytera, and yet other resources for both. In order to access "closed" parts of this website, you must register. We encourage you to read all policies and notes before joining.

The Directory of Orthodox Christian Mental Health Providers began when a group of licensed mental health professionals, who are also priest wives in the Greek Orthodox Church, were asked by the National Sisterhood of Presvyteres to organize a list of Orthodox Christian mental health professionals. The following is comprised of marriage and family therapists, psychologists, psychotherapists, and psychiatrists that might help meet the needs of all Orthodox Christians searching for support where their religious identity will be welcome and integrated into the counseling experience. We were invited to partner with the Assembly of Bishops' efforts through OCAMPR to create a more sophisticated directory that will allow users to plug in their zip-code and/or state to search for Orthodox providers. The ultimate goal is a single, comprehensive directory with detailed information about each provider. The Mental Health Task Force of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops (MHTFAoB) recognizes our groundbreaking work in this area and Presvytera Julie Honeycutt represents us as a member of the Task Force Steering Committee and co-chair of the Directory Working group to bring continuity in this season of transitioning the directory. We are thankful that our hierarchs value mental health and are taking our volunteer work to the next level! Please direct future directory related correspondence to ministries@assemblyofbishops.org
