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.

Love the quote:
"Raise your words, not your voice.
It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder." by Rumi
What a great way to think of this!
Remembering that one doesn't have to have a bad life to be suicidal.
Many are rich and seem to have it made!
People do want to see hope, have understanding, and know that help is near.
The risk factors for student suicide is limitless and it feels the protective factors are much fewer.
