Preventing Suicide: A Handbook for Pastors, Chaplains and Pastoral Counselors

Posted on 28 November 2014 Gavin Glenn

What is the Church’s Role in Suicide Prevention?

While we tend to view the work of suicide preventions as the task of professional therapists and doctors, the church can also play a vital role. Yet many pastors, chaplains and pastoral counsellors feel overwhelmed and unprepared to prevent suicides. In this practical handbook, psychologist Karen Mason equips ministry professionals to work with suicidal individuals. Integrating theology and psychology, she show how pastoral caregivers can be agents of hope, teaching the significance of life, monitoring those at risk and intervening when they need help.

When our church members struggle in the darkness, the darkness need not overcome them. Discover how you and your church can be proactive in caring for those at risk of self-harm.
