Action Steps to Prevent Suicide

Posted on September 18, 2021 by Published by

Every 40 seconds, someone loses their life to suicide.  Click here for FIVE ACTION STEPS you can take to help prevent suicide.

During the month of September, we remember and pray for those who are struggling with feelings of depression, isolation, emptiness, and/or hopelessness, and who may be contemplating suicide. We also pray for those who minister and care for those suffering from these feelings — priests, religious, healthcare professionals, parents, siblings, families, and friends.  And we remember those who have lost loved ones to the tragedy of suicide.

If you are contemplating harming yourself, or know someone who is, please get help!  Know that you are loved, you matter, you are God’s creation, and that you have the power to make a positive difference in the world, and in the lives of others.
