Churchgoing linked to lower suicide risk

That is the headline of this article right here on the Washington Times.
Note that it makes a difference between being spiritual and going the church. Read the article for the specifics.

Interesting study.
Back in the olden days when I was training to be a psychi nurse I did a large project on Spiritual Care and discovered that those with a healthy religious practice were better able to fight depression and far less likely to self harm or attempt suicide.

I'm trying to remember a LONG time ago-but I think there was even a study that showed prayer actively assisted people with anxiety.
