Teen suicide is a serious problem in the United States even if it doesn’t receive as much attention as it should. Four out of five teen suicide attempts occur after warning signs. People consider suicide for various reasons, although people experiencing or showing symptoms of depression may be more vulnerable. If you notice you or a friend having feelings of hopelessness or overwhelmed by everyday life, talk to someone or talk to that person. TeensHealth and Teen Suicide both list warning signs and some of the things that you can do if you notice them. It seems that being aware of the signs, being supportive, involving an adult and seeking professional help are all crucial in trying to prevent suicide. In addition to talking to a friend, there are also national, such as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, and local suicide hotlines available 24 hours a day. So if you notice something, say something; don’t be afraid to reach out and get help because there are people who care.
