  • 1. Teenage Suicide and Twisted By: Aaron Pikula
  • 2. What is teen suicide?
    • Suicide is the intentional taking of one's own life. Teen suicide is just that a teenager taking their own life.
    • Teenagers are especially vulnerable to suicide since their minds are still growing and developing. They are also at risk because a growing mind makes a lot of decisions without considering long-term consequences.
  • 3. What are the warning signs of a suicidal teen?
    • There are some warning signs to a suicidal teen that need to be taken seriously whenever they are encountered. They include:
    • Sudden change in their personality
    • Loss of interest of once pleasurable activities
    • Frequent mood swings,accompanied by violent behavior
    • Stating that they are a bad person
