Know the facts about suicide prevention and share this knowledge with others in your faith community.

Help them understand that:

  • Mental health challenges and mental illnesses are as “real” as physical health problems.
  • Suicide does not discriminate. It touches people of all ages and classes; all racial, ethnic, and religious groups. 
  • Suicide is preventable. Your faith community can be an important source of hope and help.
