Another Resource: Suicide Prevention for Faith Leaders
September is Suicide Awareness Month
By recognizing September as National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, you will be helping to destigmatize suicide so that your faith community can become a place in which suicide is prevented or reduced and members who have lost a loved one to suicide can receive compassionate ministry.
Listed below are links to resources provided by Faith Connections on Mental Illness Task Force on Suicide Prevention/Reduction that we feel could provide helpful information including sample prayers and liturgies from different faith traditions. You can select something to use during your worship service as well as in your communications.
