When we talk about faith and preventing suicide, it’s important to understand that how faith, mental health, and suicide are connected can be really complicated.

Studies and research show that faith can offer support and helpful resources for preventing suicide, such as community, care, understanding suffering, and a sense of belonging.

However, it can also present challenges that make talking about suicide prevention and support afterward tough.


Talking Faith in Suicide Prevention is a website offers help, advice and guidance for different religions and faiths.


If you would like to a mental health charity to support your local faith group Thurrock and Brentwood Mind are here to help, we would love the opportunity to attend your community group meetings, listen to the stories and experiences of your members, and engage in meaningful conversations about mental health.
