Care & Support

Care & Support

Mental Health Support

Westover offers Care & Support groups for individuals experiencing a mental health difficulty and a separate group for their family members, both with the goal to relieve suffering, reveal Christ, and restore lives. These Christ-centered communities offer practical skills and tools pertaining to the topic of the week. While each week's topic will stand-alone, regular attendance will enhance relationships and community support.

*Disclaimer: This small group ministry is not intended to be a substitute for mental health, medical, pastoral, legal or other professional services. If expert assistance or attention is required, the services of a competent professional should be sought.

Crisis and Suicide Support

If you are having suicidal thoughts, please ask for immediate help at the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK(8255).

If you or someone you know has warning signs or symptoms of suicide, particularly if there is a change in the behavior or a new behavior, get help as soon as possible.  

Often, family and friends are the first to recognize the warning signs of suicide and can take the first step toward helping an at-risk individual find treatment with someone who specializes in diagnosing and treating mental health conditions.

If someone is telling you that they are going to kill themselves,

  • Do not leave them alone.

  • Do not promise anyone that you will keep their suicidal thoughts a secret.

  • Make sure to tell a trusted friend or family member, or if you are a student, an adult with whom you feel comfortable.

  • Pray! Cry out to the Lord for help.

  • Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK(8255)

  • Other resources for suicide prevention from the National Institute of Mental Health
