About the event
Soul Shop will share a faith-based suicide prevention workshop for parents and youth
Soul Shop is the leading provider of faith-based suicide prevention workshops in the US.
6% of adults and 17% of adolescents are thinking about suicide at any given time and 50% of any congregation is impacted by suicide in some form. This is an issue that the church cannot avoid. Communities of faith have both a theological obligation and a call by God to face this challenge head-on, equipping members to do the same.
This workshop will address the stigma, fear, and shame; statistics/facts about suicide; and how we can create a supportive environment while shifting the culture around how people deal with this subject and one another.
Everyone has a role to play when it comes to mental health. As people of faith, we can equip ourselves and learn to support others who feel desperate and alone.
All are welcome.
