  4. 6. Why do some teenagers commit suicide <ul><li>There are no sure answer for that , because when youth die by suicide they take the answers with them. But teens who attempt suicide and survive tell us that they wanted to die to end the pain of living. They are often experiencing a number of stressors and feel that they do not have the strength or desire to continue living. </li></ul>

  7. 11. Alcohol and drugs problems <ul><li>Teens with alcohol and drugs problems are also more at risk for suicidal thinking and behavior. </li></ul><ul><li>Alcohol and some drugs have depressive effects on the brain. </li></ul><ul><li>Abuse of these substance can bring on serious depression. </li></ul><ul><li>Many people who are depressed turn to alcohol or drugs as an escape. </li></ul><ul><li>Many suicide attempts occur when a person is under the influences of alcohol or drugs. </li></ul><ul><li>Proper treatment of teen drug abuse is necessary. There are variety of treatment options, including in and out patient treatments local and nation rehab, in patient treatment programs. </li></ul><ul><li>Its is important to remember that helping a teen with drug abuse problems involves support and love from family and friends. </li></ul>
  8. 12. Low-self-esteem <ul><li>One of the issues that can affect teenagers is that of self esteem. </li></ul><ul><li>Self esteem refers to how one feels about him or herself. </li></ul><ul><li>Low teen self esteem can lead to sexual activity sometimes resulting in teen pregnancy, depression and even suicide. </li></ul><ul><li>Its is important to recognize teenagers need to feel valued and loved. </li></ul><ul><li>The way that you can help teens overcome low self esteem. They have to try to say at least one positive thing for each negative things they say about their self. The local and national suicide prevention programs can also helped with the teen problems. </li></ul>
  9. 14. Teen Verbal abuse <ul><li>Teen verbal abuse is very common, more common than physical abuse. </li></ul><ul><li>Because verbal abuse is not obvious and it doesn’t leave visible marks like physical abuse it hards to deal with teen verbal abuse. </li></ul><ul><li>Teens and kids are in the worst possible position when it comes to verbal abuse. </li></ul><ul><li>The most know types of verbal abuse are name calling, put-down, blaming and criticizing, but there are others any form of indult can be considered as verbal abuse. </li></ul><ul><li>The biggest problem with verbal remains the facts that it is hard to prevent and hard to deal with as it almost always comes down to “he said, she said”. Teens can go to local and national suicide prevention programs to help them deal with verbal abuse. </li></ul>
  10. 15. conclusion <ul><li>In conclusion, I believe we must address the notion of teenage suicide with considerable energy. I personally believe that suicide is a very selfish act; the person doesn’t think about the people that they’ll hurt by doing the act. Attempts of suicide are cries for help, and whether they are heard or not may be the difference between life and death. When a teenager depressed, they can’t think of anything else to do but end their life. Depression begins with family problems where teenager begins feeling a form loss. It continues when they feel socially unaccepted by their peers, and pressured from their friends to be someone they aren’t. </li></ul>
