What is Alive to Thrive™?
Alive to Thrive is a biblical guide to preventing teen suicide. Anyone who interacts with teens can learn how to help prevent suicidal thinking through sound practical and clinical advice, and more importantly, biblical principles that will provide a young person with hope in Christ.
Jim Daly, President of Focus on the Family, explains the importance of this program.
Why Suicide Prevention Matters
On average, more than 3,000 teens attempt suicide every day, and many of these lives end tragically. Focus on the Family is committed to driving that number down through a holistic approach to suicide prevention. Through Alive to Thrive, you may become the lifeline that saves a young person’s life.
Youth Pastor and former American Idol star, Phil Stacey, explains his personal connection to teen suicide.
Survivors talk about their struggles and the hope they found in Jesus Christ
Listen to youth leaders and young people talk frankly about real-life issues including depression, anxiety, bullying, peer pressure and other factors that can lead to suicidal thoughts.
Listen to teens express the pressures they face every day, and how those pressures impact their sense of self-worth, belonging, hope, despair and life in general. As you’ll see, young people are often just moments away from tragedy.
Youth Leader Roundtable

You’ll hear the heart of people on the front line of youth ministry in a turbulent culture. In addition, you’ll learn more about the fact that suicidal thinking is a profoundly spiritual issue that cannot be ignored.
