The Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta has created Keep/Watch: Suicide, Christ, and Community. This is a resource to equip people and congregations to practice community-based suicide prevention. This workbook is a resource for anyone who wants to help keep their community safe from suicide. It’s theologically and experientially grounded and informed by peer-reviewed research and evidence-based outcomes. 

We’ve sold out of this resource and are waiting for a new batch of books to be printed and available for online purchase. Sign up here to get an email alert when Keep/Watch is available.

The Diocesan Youth Commission plan and host this retreat in January at Camp Mikell.

Register here before December 18.
