Suicide occurs approximately eighty-nine times each day in the United States, making it the eleventh leading cause of death among people of all ages.

How do we support those whose loved ones commit suicide? What should be said? What should not be said? How should the church respond?

This one-session study examines the signs to watch for in persons considering suicide and provides many ideas of how the church and its members can be helpful when the unfortunate happens. Various resources are recommended.
