WATERTOWN — Helping people move through the painful grieving process after losing a loved one is a special calling.

I’ve known several individuals who work in the mortuary industry, and I don’t envy them. Their work involves interacting with people who are hurting deeply and wish they didn’t need to go through this experience.

"Stakeholders" are invited to attend the JCSPC summit in September.

The stakeholders I encourage to attend are leaders of faith communities, particularly Christian ones. While all of us can come to better understand and effectively respond to depression, mental illness and suicide, faith communities, in particular, need fresh and informed ways to understand and effectively respond to them in the contexts of faith and theology.
