  • 8. Knowing about it, can help you prevent it ! If you see the signs, let let someone know , or get them help! Catch it before it is too late!
  • 9. How to Help or Solve Teen Suicide A Teen needs to know that there are people to talk to and people who care about them. Restrict access to firearms and ammunition Don’t be afraid to ask the person if they are suicidal. It shows that you are concerned. If the person does not want to talk to you, suggest other people that they can talk to. (C-Health, 2013)
  • 10. (Social Problems Ppt., slide 12) Symbolic Interactionism Teen suicides relate to symbolic interactionism because: • Their behaviours and attitudes can depend on how others perceive them • Focuses on the individual level Teens care a lot about how others think of them. The suicides I have personally heard of , have been mainly because of bullying. For example, Amanda Todd
  • 11. My Thoughts on a Solutions: I personally believe that showing that you care 24/7 to the people you love can help with the suicides. If your teen is having bullying problems that you know of, be sure to confront the situation and plan out the best course of action. Watch for signs and symptoms and try to stop it before it’s to late!
