September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. Over 800,000 people die by suicide worldwide every year. In the United States, suicide rates have surged to the highest levels in nearly 30 years, with increases in every age group.

The Church provides many resources to help understand, prevent, and heal from the pain of suicide.

The Church website features three videos with Elder Dale G. Renlund to help you approach those who may be considering suicide. “We need to reach out with love and understanding… And you do that in concert with health care professionals, with ecclesiastical leaders, with friends and family support.”
