Welcome back Warriors for day 2 of suicide prevention awareness week. For everyday of this week I'm releasing a show in support of those who are struggling today. This show i welcome back Joel W Hawbaker. Where we chat about 9/11 anxiety, as it's the 9/11 anniversary today it felt appropriate that we cover some of wider after effects it had on our psyche. We chat about the church and the christian perspective of suicide.
How does christianity approach it?
Is it stigmatised?
How can you reach out or allow someone to reach in?
If your community isn't supporting you how can you find one that does?
How hope is going to keep you going when keeping going in the most painful thing to do.
