Teens Thinking About Suicide

By PeggySue Wells:

Are you one of those teens thinking about suicide? Think on these facts, instead.

 

Girls report depression more often than boys; boys are less likely to recognize depression.

Left untreated, depression can lead to teens thinking about suicide, and untreated depression is the number one cause of teen suicide. Only 33 percent of teens get help.

Yet 80 percent of teens with depression can be treated successfully.

If you are a teen, or know a teen, or work with teens, Remedy.fm is a resource available 24/7. A positive internet radio, Remedy.fm is interactive. Listeners can text in around the clock and talk with a soul medic – trained volunteers available to listen, and chat. No matter what your situation, people are waiting to talk to you. They want to help. They care.

Log in to Remedy.fm at www.RemedyLive.com  If you are thinking about suicide, click on the suicide tab on the ‘Need Help’ bar. To chat anonymously with a soul medic, click Live Chat Now. You can also see a video on that page, including statistics, then a movie clip, than a frank discussion about reasons for many teens thinking about suicide.

If you are depressed and contemplating suicide, you can also find help by dialing the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255), a free, 24-hour hotline available to anyone in suicidal crisis or emotional distress. If your life is immediately at risk, dial 911.

Don’t be a statistic.
