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.

For example, let's take, for instance, foster; with their help, you can become a relief parent and help a child grow a beautiful and happy life. You can read more on their website. Visit if you are interested. I am sure you will learn many new things there.

Unfortunately, it happens more often these days if compared to the past. But, many organizations are trying to combat these practices among teenagers.
