Overview

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. These youths may be very susceptible to thoughts of suicide, and it is helpful to know what to look for. Join Tamara Hill, a licensed child and adolescent therapist and certified trauma professional, as she discusses safety planning and the 5 things we tend to miss while trying to understand suicide among youths ages 7-20.
