Su***de prevention resources Find resources for su***de prevention for your or someone you know.


Supporting your partner through difficult moments starts with making them feel seen and heard. ⁠

Dr. John Gottman discovered that couples who remained close over time were good at listening to each other’s stresses. One way to do this is by regularly have a Stress-Reducing Conversation. ⁠

Take about 30 minutes daily or weekly to discuss things from outside the relationship that may be causing each of you stress or hurt. Spend half the time listening to your partner’s feelings and half sharing your own. This isn’t the time to come up with solutions for one another or talk about things within the relationship that are upsetting you. Instead, offer empathy and understanding. ⁠
For additional relationship resources:


Tomorrow -- the International Day of Peace

It’s not a matter of “should you argue” but “how you argue.” Modeling healthy conflict means approaching conflict as an opportunity to understand, brainstorm, and agree together. The result may not be the exact outcome you wanted, but it's about regulating conflict instead of resolving it.

Melissa Benaroya, MSW, LICSW (Childproof Parenting - Melissa Benaroya)shares tips about arguing with your partner & if you have kids, the influence this could have on them. Read it here:

TONIGHT the "Peace After Divorce" program begins in Springfield.
Lauren Geraghty, the lead pastor at Springfield UMC, told us about this wonderful program that Westwood Baptist is offering. The program is full of love, not judgment.
It begins TONIGHT at 7 pm so if you're interested, please contact the facilitator as soon as possible! Her name is Susan and her email is [email protected]
This is what Susan shared about the program:
"Coping with the loss of your marriage and rediscovering joy in life is on the horizon—and this curriculum paves the way. Peace after Divorce offers a grace-filled, uplifting experience that promotes real action toward personal growth and healing. This is much more than a divorce support group. Participants are empowered to take practical steps, find hope, have faith, and feel better in the midst of trauma and all the emotions divorce brings.
The book on which the discussions will be based is very much focused on addressing the emotional trauma of divorce and the grace those in the midst of it (or its aftermath) should grant themselves, as well as their former partners.
As a divorced mom with my share of battle scars, I found this book much more realistic in terms of the trauma piece, and kind, i.e., grace-filled, than other options I considered that were more "you did a bad thing, but God loves you anyway" in tone. Others I considered also tended to sweep the trauma and pain under the rug and focus on how divorced people have disappointed God and broken the rules, which is not a perspective I (or our senior pastor) would endorse."

Our Story

Relationships can be challenging. Families sometimes have problems. Professional Family Mediators can help.
