Faith Communities

In their day-to-day work, faith-based groups already contribute to suicide prevention by increasing hope, supporting emotional well-being, and fostering the development of positive social connections. Faith communities are also critical sources of support during challenging times. These groups can play an important role in identifying individuals in distress and helping them seek help. In addition, they can also support members who have lost a loved one to suicide.



The Action Alliance’s Faith Communities Task Force developed Faith.Hope.Life to help faith communities, regardless of creed, address suicide prevention.
