+  September is Suicide Awareness Month

  • Description: "We lost our 27 year daughter to suicide two years ago. After her death; I have become keenly aware of the great numbers of people that die by suicide each year in our nation. More than 40,000 people die each year to suicide and the number is increasing each year. This is a problem that affects our youth and our elderly. As a Church, we need to do more to prevent this tragedy." - Deacon Lejune

      I am working with the Office of Marriage and Family Life in my diocese (Diocese of Lafayette, Louisiana) to begin support groups to assist those that have lost a family member, loved one or just a friend to suicide. I am also do talks to anyone that will listen in an effort to debunk many of the rumors of the teaching of the Church regarding suicide and to let suicide survivors (a suicide survivor is defined as someone that has been affected by the death of another person by suicide) know that they are not alone. I am also involved in a non-profit (Crouch Foundation) that teaches suicide prevention and awareness to teachers and students.
