Through his mercy and grace, Jesus provides us a clear path to peace and happiness. Yet, for many, mental health issues can impede that path. Suicidal thoughts are a particularly difficult struggle for some. September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. In the last year, the CDC reported more than 48,000 suicides. Learn the warning signs that someone is in distress. If a loved one is suffering with suicidal thoughts or actions, know that help is available. United to the healing love of God, we can all be a true friend to those struggling. To those enduring the pain of suicidal thoughts: There is hope even in the darkest moments, and there are people ready to walk with you. Through a friend or the new “988” suicide lifeline, please, reach out for help.
