Self-Care & Suicide Prevention

  • The Hope Center Remlap, Alabama (map)

What if you could experience a new level of freedom, strength, healing, and energy?

Too many people are overwhelmed and holding on to deep suffering, unable to catch their breath in a world that tells them to fake it ‘til they make it. As the pressure of fear, pain, anxiety, and anger build, sooner or later these individuals are going to explode—just like bestselling author and life coach Steve Austin.

That’s no way to live.

With rare honesty, true stories, and refreshingly straight talk, Austin shares his personal journey from crippling anxiety and perfectionism to calm amid life’s inevitable chaos. He pulls no punches, revealing his darkest moments and the thoughts most people would be too afraid to admit to.

Yet he offers hope. In this powerful talk, you’ll find simple ways to cultivate calm and practice self-care by living courageously and authentically. It all starts with vulnerability.

Discover how to come up for air and breathe again.

This gathering will include two sessions:

1) Approximately 30 minutes on the basics of self-care.
2) About a 45-minute session on suicide prevention, with Q&A at the end.

Steve Austin was a pastor when he nearly died by suicide. A second chance, a grueling recovery, and years of honest conversation allowed Steve to find healing and purpose. It’s evident in his writing, speaking, podcasting, and coaching: he helps overwhelmed people get their lives back.

Steve is also the author of the Amazon bestseller, "From Pastor to a Psych Ward," plus "Self-Care for the Wounded Soul," and his upcoming book, "Catching Your Breath: The Sacred Journey from Chaos to Calm." He lives in Birmingham, Alabama, with his wife, Lindsey, and their two children. Find him online at
