Life can be difficult and sometimes discouraging. Unfortunately, children and teens may feel particularly lonely and overwhelmed when their lives begin to crumble after an emotionally destabilizing event. That event might be a death in the family, a personal tragedy, an episode of bullying, a struggle with poverty, or some kind of existential stressor. Understanding these risk factors and how they contribute to youth suicide is the first step in recognizing and reducing suicides among children and teens. Join Tamara Hill, a licensed child and adolescent therapist and certified trauma professional, as she discusses the psychological, emotional, physiological, and neurological factors often associated with suicide among youths ages 7 to 20.

How we as parents discuss suicide depictions in films or accounts in the news affects how our kids think about it and whether it is safe to discuss suicidal thoughts. Consider how we'll discuss in class if a novel includes thoughts or references to suicide.
