Family Connect

You’re probably wondering,

“How did we ever get here?”

If someone in your family is expressing thoughts of suicide, it’s likely more about finding a way out of pain than really wanting to end his or her life.

The challenges kids are facing these days are unprecedented. Ending the pain is a goal you can share with your child, and LifeNet is here to help you journey towards this shared goal.

When ending the pain is the goal, it’s possible to move towards alternative ways to find genuine peace, relief, and control – even if there are moments when your son or daughter sees suicide as the only way out.

Understanding Your Home

In this world where everything is changing and many feel they’ve lost their mooring, there are some things that never change. In the case of the home, the purpose has remained constant. It’s a place of refuge, safety and family community. 

While the challenges of the day make it more or less difficult to fulfill the purposes, doing our best to fulfill the purpose has a positive effect on everyone’s mental health.

LifeLaunch Rite of Passage

Today’s young people are struggling against the tide of cultural revolution, battling waves of confusion and chaos to find their moorings.

Gone are the rites of passage, markers of thresholds in young lives, once observed as memorable family tradi- tions. Left to drift into adulthood at the mercy of the winds of change, many of today’s youth have crashed on the shoals as statistics in the shipwreck of suicide, now the second leading cause of death among Gen Z and Gen Alpha youth.

Sometimes progress means abandoning whatever isn’t working and returning to whatever worked. We owe it to our children to turn this around for them.

In this booklet you’ll find tools for helping to launch your child or youth group participant through a successful transition into adulthood. You’ll discover:

Why an adolescent needs a LifeLaunch

The benefits of a LifeLaunch celebration

A workbook for planning a LifeLaunch party

A guestbook and space for special messages from your guests

Plan to Protect

Be Proactive. Make sure

Protection and prevention are monumentally preferable to long roads to restoration. Because some kind of abuse is often at the root of a child’s mental health issues, making sure your child is protected while under someone else’s care is critical.

For 25 years, Plan to Protect has provided the highest standard of abuse prevention and protection for organizations serving the vulnerable sector. What about your school, your church, your sports club? Do they have Plan to Protect protocols in place? Be proactive. Make sure.

Understanding Faith

According to Pew Research, Gen Z is the least “religious” generation, with about one-third denying faith in God. They are also the highest percentage-wise in suicide rates. What is the correlation? 

It can be convincingly argued that without substantiated faith in something beyond one’s self, there is no reason to live, because of the realistic awareness of one’s own weaknesses. Hence the importance of finding faith in something beyond one’s self. But what is that? Is God real? Who is He? 

Click on the Alpha Series for reasoned discussion.  “The Chosen” Series of films on the life of Jesus has emerged as one of the most transformational tools of our time for a realistic look into the foundations of meaningful Christian faith.
