The first issue of Taking Care has come from TSA, helping equip Theo Students with practical tools for ministry. Keep your eyes open for Taking Care as well as other uplifting visuals around Seminary Hall.
October’s focus is Suicide Awareness and Prevention, as September was Suicide Awareness month. One of the main resources in the newsletter is the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline with a live chat available and the phone number for the 24-hour hotline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). Feel free to print this newsletter for your personal use, your church, whatever is most helpful.
Clergy are some of the most unhealthy people in a congregation – let’s break that cycle by starting as healthy students. Self care is so important, we need to take care of ourselves and help take care of each other. There will be an event in October to open up discussion about mental health and suicide, keep your eyes open for announcements about that event.
Take care of yourself!
With love from TSA.
