HHC – Collateral Damage: The Impact of Suicide on Congregations and Caregivers
About This Video
Suicide is a common cause of death which is often challenging to discuss because of stigma. A particular difficulty is the way suicide leaves painful questions within family members and caregivers of those lost to this grievous consequence of mental illness. This session will discuss this problem and how faith communities can come together to provide a healing space in the midst of pain and uncertainty.
