Oklahoma Conference of the United Methodist Church

Suicide is subject of new resources


A set of DVDs and books on how to help students at risk for suicide has been added to the DVD Library at the United Methodist Ministry Center in Oklahoma City.

The materials, which were donated by the conference’s Youth Ministries, may be borrowed at no charge.

Several church youth directors requested access to the Lifeline materials after they attended an October program on suicide called "Let’s Talk," said Diana Northcutt, the Conference’s youth coordinator and director of Discipleship Ministries.

The Lifelines collection includes DVDs titled "Not My Kid: What Every Parent Should Know," "A Teen’s Guide to Suicide Prevention," and "One Life Saved."

The collection also contains a DVD on intervention for students who appear to be suicidal.

The companion books are: "Lifelines: A Suicide Prevention Program," "Lifelines: Intervention. Helping Students at Risk for Suicide," and "Lifelines: Postvention. Responding to Suicide and Other Traumatic Death."

To request the materials, call communications assistant Chris Schutz at 405-530-2075 or email her at cschutz@okumc.org.

Hundreds of video resources are available for free checkout in the DVD Library. Browse titles and descriptions online at www.okumc.org/dvd_library.
