Teen Suicide

By: Brendon

There are a few reasons teens resort to suicide when they are struggling with severe depression, anxiety loneliness, confusion and overwhelming sadness. Most of the time teens commit suicide because they are trying to escape from their lives or a situation that is emotionally and/or physically damaging. Teens unable to cope with these situations are often desperate to escape and see death as the only way to effectively do so. Some teens might try to end their lives through suicide to deal with bullying, torment, abuse, feelings of self-loathing and self-hate. Teens who are likely to commit suicide may not feel that they have a strong support system or many friends who can be there for them.

What you can say that helps:

You are not alone in this. I’m here for you. You may not believe it now, but the way you’re feeling will change. I may not be able to understand exactly how you feel, but I care about you and want to help. when you want to give up, tell yourself you will hold off for just one more day, hour, minute—whatever you can manage.
