There are tools available to atheists and agnostics for growth.

Viktor Frankl’s most popular book is called, Man’s Search for Meaning. He was an inmate of concentration camps for three years. He observed that inmates who found meaning in life in spite of their suffering were the ones who didn’t lose their minds.

Sam Harris is a proponent of secular Buddhism. He wrote a book about it called Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion

Alain de Botton is a proponent of finding wisdom in the world’s religious traditions while leaving the supernatural behind. He wrote a book called Religion for Atheists: A Non-believer’s Guide to the Uses of Religion

Chris Steadman is an atheist who partners with theists to work for social justice. His book is called Faitheist: How an Atheist Found Common Ground with the Religious

There are atheist churches, such as the Sunday Assembly. There is the Humanist Society and the American Ethical Union, etc. I recommend doing a Google search to find a community in your area.
