RENEWAL is designed to offer hope and comfort to people suffering from mental health disorders or addiction disorders, and support to the people who love them. Our approach is based on respect for the dignity of the people we serve and the belief that through a faith-based program, life-changing results are possible.

RENEWAL: Christian Treatment and Recovery is an optional treatment supplement available through Brookhaven Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma. At Brookhaven, we understand that when you are suffering from an eating disorder, a personality disorder, a behavioral health disorder or chemical dependency, life can seem utterly hopeless.

God who created us and loves us (Genesis 1:26)
Jesus Christ who redeems us (Isaiah 53:5)
The Holy Spirit who guides us (Acts 1:8)

Can a Blood Test Predict Suicide Risk?

Blood SamplesSuicide is a plague eating away at the foundation of the church and society. Far too many families are impacted by the tragic decision to take one’s life, and far too many people struggle with mood disorders until eventually they succumb. However, in the future we might be able to identify people at high risk for suicide with a simple blood test.

A new study conducted by the Indiana University School of Medicine analyzed blood biomarkers and found that blood tests may be an accurate predictor of possible mood disorders. If this turns out to be true, people with mood disorders will be able to gain an objective diagnosis at much earlier ages, allowing them to find treatment that could potentially save their life.

The study compared blood markers from those who have attempted or successfully committed suicide, according to Christian Post reporter Brittney R. Villalva. The first part of the research examined blood markers of nine male subjects, compared against the researchers’ predicted markers for suicide. The researchers observed the markers were at heightened levels for all of the men. Then, a second group consisting of 42 men with bipolar disorder and 46 men with psychosis was tested. Again, they found the target blood markers for the patients was heightened.

The test did lack a comparison against people who do not indicate suicidal tendencies. As such, the publishing in Molecular Psychiatry does suggest that research on a wider population and those without mood disorders would need to be conducted before there are any conclusive results.
