Care & Counseling
Mental Health/Suicide Prevention
The holidays are a lonely time when your family lives far away or time with your family opens emotional wounds that have never healed. Although a joyous time for many, the holidays can be especially lonely for singles celebrating with large gathering of family and friends. Please visit our websites for groups that can help if you are struggling and need help: Pastoral Care; Celebrate Recovery; Support Groups (look under Add'l Ministries in the top nav); Mental Health/Suicide Prevention.
Click "Suicide Prevention Ministry" in the designation list.
See It-Say It (From Minnesota Institute of Public Health)
When a friend or family member engages in risky, unhealthy, or suicidal behaviors here is a simple caring, but assertive way to talk to them.
Remember if someone is actively suicidal, get help immediately, do not leave them alone, and get medical or mental health assistance as a place to start the healing process. Seek spiritual guidance from your pastor.
(From Sources of Strength, Inc.)
Counseling makes sense when you are having trouble coping with any situation or personal problem. It offers emotional support, new perspectives, and help in considering possible solutions.
So if you just want someone to talk to, are having a lot of changes, are in distress or feel overwhelmed by a concern, or find that you keep repeating the same mistakes, then you might consider counseling.
Some people don't succeed at counseling at first because of fear of change, unwillingness to deal with their problems, or it was not the right counselor for them. Often, people do not present the problem as it truly is but instead pick and choose what they wish to share. Some want the counselor to do an instant fix or do the work for them.
While some individuals who seek counseling services may have serious problems, it is also recommended for any life challenge and adjustment issues that a person may face. The role of the counselor is not to "tell" you what to do, but rather, to present informed choices, direct you to resources, supply you with information that you may not readily have and also support you in understanding how to meet your needs.
Weakness is actually the feeling that you can have when you are overwhelmed and are not getting help. It takes courage and strength to be able to get the help that you need.
