Overview: Suicide is never the answer for escaping our pain and problems. God loves us too much to desire any one of His children to choose suicide as an option for solving their pain. We can rest assured in the comfort that our Savior, Jesus, has experienced terrible suffering and humiliation himself, and He understands exactly what were going through. We look forward to heaven, and strengthen each other to get through the difficulties of this life as brothers and sisters in Christ, together clinging to the promise that "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble" (Psalm 46:1).
This study is designed to be used both proactively and reactively. It can be used with youth who are currently struggling after the suicide of a friend or loved one, it can be used for youth wrestling with their own suicidal feelings, or it can be used for youth working through difficult topics they desire to know more about.
