Product Description

Nothing is as heart-breaking as a loved one who has lost hope and is contemplating suicide. A person who seems cheerful one day can slip into despair and hopelessness the next. God's heart is tender and full of compassion toward those experiencing deep pain. Prevention requires compassion toward the sufferer, along with practical steps and biblical assurance of God's love. Suicide Prevention covers the steps to identifying and preventing suicide using a Christian approach. You'll learn how to better reflect God's heart to help those hurting, and you'll gain practical insight on what to say and what to do as you reach out to a suicidal loved one.

    Suicide Prevention: Restoring Hope

    According to the World Health Organization, approximately one million people die by suicide annually. They are convinced that death will rescue and relieve them from suffering the heavy burden of overwhelming pain. They are people without hope.

    In "Suicide Prevention: Hope When Life Seems Hopeless," Author June Hunt says, "God created everyone with an inner need to feel significant, yet the desire to live slowly burns out within a heart that no longer sees a reason to live. As the candle of hope is extinguished, that inner sense of purpose is snuffed out by overwhelming despair."

    In this 96-page booklet, Hunt speaks to the power of haunting trauma, mocking shame, suffocating secrecy, engulfing agony, a victimizer's power, crushing emotional burdens, tormenting self-hatred, and the catalysts that push sufferers over the edge.

    She writes, "Those struggling with life-threatening thoughts do not feel connected to others. They feel all alone--even alone in the midst of a crowd." What we need to know about people obsessed with or considering suicide is this: People don't want to die--what they really want is for their pain to end. They also need to know they are not alone. People want a reason to hope. But they need something more powerful than themselves to lead them out of the darkness that deceives them into thinking and believing that death is the answer, and into the light. This mini-book is part of Hunt's "Hope For The Heart" series that speaks to a variety of issues that keep people from living their life to the fullest, (from a biblical point of view).

    The author outlines three stages for observers to be aware of in the case of potential suicide (associated thinking/behaviors/attitudes); characteristics of suicidal teens; and various questions you can ask a suicidal spouse, child, or friend. Readers will also learn definitions, characteristics, causes, and most importantly, steps to solutions. The booklet offers a run-through of personal spiritual history, medical history, thought patterns, and family suicidal history that can be used as an assessment aid; plus a practical checklist with examples of ways to alleviate suicidal obsession. She also includes a section on "bully-cide".

    This booklet provides a quick overview on suicide and prevention along with both practical and spiritual helps. The author also points out the wisdom in sharing with a trusted friend, advisor, medical and/or mental health professional.

    In reestablishing hope for the heart, the author leads readers back to God's desire: to restore lives through his love, to give comfort, and compassion. He wants to make broken lives and shattered hearts whole again--to alleviate pain, heal hearts, and restore hope.

    Note: Rose Publishing provided me with an advanced reader copy of this booklet.
