About adolescent suicides.pptx
When a teen is feeling overwhelmed and frustrated with no other solution they might consider suicide. It is awful for those left
behind and a lot of people wonder if there were signs they missed or if there was something anyone could have done to prevent it.
Sadly, as you can find with supportive organizations like the SPTS, the answer is almost always yes to both of those questions.
Here we take a dig into what teens are at risk and what signs to look for.
Why teens see suicide as the answer
There are a variety of reasons and having some understanding can help with efforts towards youth suicide prevention. It is the
second top cause of death for children aged ten to fourteen. It is the third for those in the fifteen to twenty-four-year-old bracket.
Sometimes there is a mental illness involved, bullying is often a reason, and school difficulties are another reason. Abuse or
problems at home are another factor. Suicide is a lot more likely in homes where they have access to firearms, as about 60% of
teen suicides are carried out with a gun. Another common method is to overdose on medications so these should be monitored.
Girls think about it more but more boys die by suicide as they use more lethal means, girls tend to overdose or cut, and there is
opportunity there to get them medical help, where boys are more likely to shoot themselves.
What adolescents are more at risk?
Youths who are struggling with their sexual identity, those who have issues with their mental health, and those going through big
life changes such as parents divorcing, are more likely to think about suicide. As mentioned bullying, and then incidents of racism,
a death or suicide in the family are also things to be concerned about. You can look to the SPTS for help but other things that
increase the risk are being distressed, feeling worthless, having made a previous attempt, not having a good paper support or home
support network and struggling with their identity.
Spotting the warning signs
In order to be successful with youth suicide prevention or mental health toolkit you need to know the warning signs. They are
there people just do not know them for what they are, or tell themselves this is not something their kid would do. Adolescents who
are considering suicide might do one or more of the following things;
● Behave as if they are not going to be around in the future
● Talk about suicide and death more
● Not want to join in with social events, or take part in activities or do hobbies they once enjoyed doing
● Talk about having feelings of guilt or hopelessness
● Not participate in school or school events and start to drop in grades
● Become withdrawn with family and/or peers
● Start taking part in actions that are risky like drink driving
● Listen to songs about loss and death, write about it and read poems about it
● Eating more or not eating enough, sleeping more or not sleeping enough
● Giving away belongings to friends and family
● Not being able to focus or concentrate on anything
