Discussing the sensitive topics of suicide, attempted suicide, and suicidal ideation* can be quite challenging because they are emotionally charged. Sometimes it's hard to find the words to express our thoughts and feelings about these issues.
Choose 2 Think Podcast guest Stephen Johnson, a licensed social worker who has been in practice for decades, reduces the charge on this issue by addressing it in a loving and God-honoring fashion.
During the interview, Stephen answers these two overarching questions:
1) Why might someone choose to take their own life?
2) What can the survivors (family members, friends, the community) do to deal with their grief and any guilt they may be feeling as a result of losing someone they know to suicide?
His answers may surprise you.
Stephen's counsel drips with wisdom and concern. In only a few moments of listening, you will notice his sincere desire to help those who are struggling from their own loss of a loved one or who are currently feeling discouraged and hopeless in their lives.
The practical tips that he gives may be just what you or someone else needs to put into play today to turn the corner and walk in a new, life-giving and healthy direction.
