Youth Suicide

The teenage years hold many new and wonderful experiences: going to new schools, meeting new people and friends, and learning new things. It is an exciting time for many adolescents. For other teens, it can be a period of loneliness and confusion as youth also deal with new experiences such as new relationships, decisions about the future, and the physical changes that are taking place in their bodies.

In the last five years, Idaho has lost 65 school-aged children to suicide. 15 of those were age 14 or younger. In 2009, 28% of Idaho high school students reported being depressed; 14% seriously considered suicide, 13% had a plan and 7% actually made one or more attempts. HOWEVER, with the right knowledge, suicide is the most preventable form of death.

THERE IS HOPE. THERE IS HELP.
