Mental Health Awareness and Suicide Prevention

We believe God is all knowing and loves unconditionally. God cares about you, does not judge you based on your mental health, does not condemn you because of your illness or suicidal thoughts/attempts. God knows your suffering and your pain, walks with you on your journey through this darkness, even if you can’t feel God’s presence.
