Suicide Prevention Ministry
(Formerly Lutheran Suicide Prevention Ministry)
We have changed our name to emphasize our continuing commitment to reaching ALL
faith -based communities and empowering them to engage in active education and advocacy in order to advance mental wellness and suicide prevention. 

Our mission remains the same. Our passion remains the same. Our determination and persistence remains the same. 
Why do we exist?
