Teen Suicide | American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry | Step Relationships | Scoop.it

Suicides among young people continue to be a serious problem. Each year in the U.S., thousands of teenagers commit suicide. Suicide is the third leading cause of death for 15-to-24-year-olds, and the sixth leading cause of death for 5-to-14-year-olds.

Teenagers experience strong feelings of stress, confusion, self-doubt, pressure to succeed, financial uncertainty, and other fears while growing up. For some teenagers, divorce, the formation of a new family with step-parents and step-siblings, or moving to a new community can be very unsettling and can intensify self-doubts. For some teens, suicide may appear to be a solution to their problems and stress.

Light My Path Ministries's insight:

It is our responsibility as adults to keep a close eye on the kids -- even the ones who "appear" to be adjusting to new circumstances.  Stay alert.
