Why should people be informed about teen suicide? ( I need like a stong reason It's a survey question that we have to ask different people. Thank you for helping me out)
People need to be informed about teen suicide to understand how widespread it is and what we possibly may do to prevent such disasters.
Thank You :)
One thing that struck me when teaching teens, is how families keep suicides quiet. Of the seven teens I taught who died in HS, 2 from car accidents, 1 from a lung disease, one from a hunting gun accident, and three were from suicide.
Not many would understand the percentage as that, nationally, it is about 12 percent, but I don't know how reliable that number is. Often, suicides are reported as accidental (overdoses, gunshots, car accidents).
We need to be informed about teen suicides because we need to prevent suicides from teens, kids and adults
