Free Suicide Prevention Lesson in This Blog
There are nearly 45,000 suicide completions each year here in America. It is the second leading cause of death for our high school students.
Imagine if one passenger jet crashed EVERY SINGLE DAY, killing everyone on board. Do you think the news networks would cover that? Would engineers be teaming up across the country to address the problem? Well, that’s how many people suicide is killing here in America, but nobody’s talking about it! It’s not on TV. It’s not on my news app. It’s not in my Facebook feed.
It’s time for us to step up and address teen suicide.
That’s why I asked TEEN TRUTH’s school counselor, Penny Knight, to attack this issue head on in her latest blog. She offers core insight into THREE simple ways to start preventing teen suicide right now.
