to prevent teen suicide
Each day in the US, more than 5400 young people in grades 7-12 attempt suicide; it’s the second leading cause of death among teens and young adults. Many factors contribute to the epidemic of teen suicide.
Research shows teen social media use increases rates of depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts.
The CDC says that four out of five teenagers who attempt suicide have given clear warning signs.
Kids who are bullied are more than twice as likely to consider suicide, according to a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
