Did I read the headline correctly? ‘Church considers suicide intervention.’ The (CNApril 14) article stated that Archbishop Robert Rivas has “expressed concern about suicide. .. and that he would see in what way the Church can make a bigger contribution in helping people to veer away from taking their own lives”
I am looking forward to the consistent follow through on this topic from the churches as they seek to discuss a subject that has been taboo in Caribbean society forever, especially in light of the many suicides that are currently affecting the region. Archbishop Rivas made the comment as he referred to the recent suicide of a 17-year-old boy in St Lucia.
