Weekly Tip - Teen Suicide Prevention

Teen suicide is something that is not often openly addressed, but is a reality in any community.  There are countless resources for teens and parents that are underutilized.  Most medical plans offer some form of counseling, church and clergy, school counselors, private and public help lines, publications and even online.  Don't ignore warning signs or life changing events that can trigger thoughts of suicide.  See some of the links and resources below:

  1. Yes I do agree that suicide is not commonly addressed or talked about inside the family but I believe that if parents open up concerning the issue then their kids would probably pick suicide as an option to escape hardship in life. May I introduce you to this site; it offers a lot of information concerning teen suicide and other teen issues you can think about. I do hope you consider reading it because I too learned a lot.
