The Gaston Faith Community Task Force produced a list of vetted professional counselors and mental health professionals on this website. The video below offers valuable insight from Lead Pastor Ray Hardee (The Pointe Church), on why a person should consider reaching out for help. He also addresses the stigma that we need to overcome related to mental health. For those who feel they may be unable to afford professional help, we encourage you to contact The Gateway at or by text at(704) 800-3836.
