Suicidal Behavior in Teens: An Intro for Educators and Parents on Triggers and Warning Signs
When something traumatic such as a suicide occurs, the shock can reverberate through the family, community, or school environment, affecting the thoughts and feelings all concerned for extended periods of time. Teens are often hit especially hard. Therapy, open communication, community support, and personal coping skills are necessary for "recovery" from the negative effects of the trauma. Join Tamara Hill, a licensed therapist and certified trauma professional, as she discusses suicidal thoughts in teens, national challenges and statistics, warning signs and problematic behaviors, and things to consider in school environments. She will also discuss possible ways the system has "failed" our youth and suggest possible ways to address those failures.
