Parents Concerned about Teen Suicide.pptx
Suicide affects teens of all backgrounds, races, religions and class. It is among the top three causes of death in youths in today’s
society. It is not anything to treat lightly and it gets worse each year, not just in this country but globally too. Some people wonder
why teens even do it, what they have to worry about or be sad about enough to take their lives. But depression, stress, pressure,
self-hate, isolation and so on are not just something adults face. Add to that their hormones and things like abuse, bullying, neglect
and more and you can see why some see no other way out. While there are resources, a suicide prevention charity that some can
turn to and find help, a lot more still needs to be done to get the resources and help to where it is needed.
Teens are not always kind to each other or themselves - It is a truth that teens are not automatically compassionate and
empathetic and with the added hormones, stresses and pain that come with that age, this can mean their world can be very
unforgiving. It is not just bullying, which comes in all kinds of forms nowadays with the internet, often they are not forgiving
towards themselves either. When they are struggling things can become overwhelming and they might not know how to express
that in a safe manner.
More than half of high schoolers have thought about suicide at least one time. Over 5% have tried it at least one time. These are
their efforts to reach out and to let people know they are in pain and they need help. A very unfortunate result of people wanting to
hide suicide and its prevalence is the suggestion that when teens talk about suicide they are looking for attention. That they are just
acting out. This could not be further from the truth. It is important to talk to them and even more important to listen to them. You
also need to know what to look for.
Warning signs of suicide
• Changes in their personality
• Withdrawing from or having problems with friends and partners
• Teen pregnancy
• Unsafe sex
• Dropping grades at school
• Not attending school
• Being withdrawn
• Not being able to focus well
• Drinking alcohol, taking drugs
• Acting out or in a way that is completely different to normal
behavior
• Running away from home
• A change in eating habits and sleeping habits
If you think your teen might be thinking of hurting themselves you need
to talk to them and get help. Take a look at the resources any suicide
prevention charity might offer, get professional help, talk to the school
and so on.
Conclusion - If you see any of the warning signs of suicide do not ignore them and brush them off as a typical teenager.
Sometimes it might be that, but sometimes it might not and early intervention means you could prevent their suicide attempt and
get them the help they need. Keep an eye on them and listen to them.
