I have been searching on Google and even on this forum, and I still haven’t found a compendium for Catholic practices that might be suitable for the psychologically ill. Indeed, I have always heard of praying the Rosary, seek St. Dymphna’s intercession, etc. However, I have never heard of something more integral, such as the mortification one can do if you have depression, or some sort of guidance to the spiritually devout (as differentiated from insane “fanatics”) who happen to be psychologically ill in some form or another (like bipolar, depression, etc.).
Of course, this is going to depend on what kind of diagnosis that one might have (me, having a bit of depression, might differ in “spiritual treatment” than say, a borderline person). But it remains the same – it seems as if there is almost no help in spiritual guidelines when it comes to people like me (at least, none that I know of). Can you help me, please?
Thanks a lot! Your help is much appreciated!

May the Sacred Heart of Jesus bless you and St. Jean Vianney help you all.
P.S.: Any recommended books that I should be reading could help too. Again, thank you for your help.
