It seems it will only post an alert to Slack but will not start it.

agree with @Amit-Naudiyal, need to add one more line "if does not exist then restart" to restart the process when encountering issue

check process _process_name_
  with pidfile /path/to/pidfile.pid
  start program = "/path/to/start" as uid _user_ and gid _group_ with timeout 30 seconds
  stop program = "/path/to/stop" as uid _user_ and gid _group_ with timeout 30 seconds
  if does not exist then restart
  if does not exist for 1 cycle
    then exec "/path/to/ruby /path/to/post_to_slack.rb --service _process_name_ --status error --text 'Process X is down'"
    else if succeeded for 1 cycle then exec "/path/to/ruby /path/to/post_to_slack.rb --service _process_name_ --status ok --text 'Process X is up'"
  group _process_group_

@jlecour thanks for the inspiration, I had to automate monit to slack on several servers therefore I made a gem.
