As suicide rates increase, faith leader shares 3 key points, noting, ‘Hope is available to everyone’

This story discusses suicide. If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide, please contact the Suicide & Crisis Lifeline at 988 or 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

This week is National Suicide Prevention Week — a time to share resources and stories, as many organizations stress, and a time to understand there is help, hope and a path forward for those struggling with mental health challenges.

Sometimes, people simply need someone to listen to them without judgment.

Above all, one faith leader who shared thoughts with Fox News Digital on the topic from his perspective stressed that “we need God, and we need each other.”

He added, “Being active in a community of faith and spending time in God’s Word fortifies and empowers. You can decide to follow Jesus today, and no one can ever remove you from God’s presence, acceptance and eternal life together.”

He also said, “Abiding with Jesus gives us a house on the rock, not the sand.”
