This excellent article from the Religion News Service, "As Black church grapples with mental health, clergy are both subject and solution," came through my inbox this morning and I wanted to share it with you.
This particular statistic struck me hard: "Suicide has a disproportionate impact on Black communities in the United States: In 2020, suicide was the third leading cause of death for Black people in their teens and early 20s. In 2019, young Black women in particular were 60% more likely to attempt suicide than their white peers."
What thoughts come to mind as you read the article? Feel free to discuss this in our mental health discussion group on our website.
