The patron saint of mental health is St. Adelaide.
“When they came to a crowd a man approached, knelt down before him, and said, ‘Lord, have pity on my son, for he is a lunatic, and suffers severely, often he falls into fire and often into water. I brought him to your disciples, but they could not cure him’….Jesus rebuked him and the demons came out of him, and from that hour that boy was cured.” – Matthew 17:14-18
