I think a way to prevent suicide among middle schoolers is to try to eliminate cyberbullying.
The rate of suicide in middle schoolers doubled in 7 years from the year 2007 to 2014. In that time, the increased use of social media and smartphones has led to an increase in cyberbullying among middle schoolers. That made kids get depression and commit suicide.
There are some signs that a kid is being cyberbullied. They can be sad or angry when using the internet, stop hanging out with their friends, not want to go to school or school activities, have mood swings, or a sudden drop in their grades at school. In order to prevent cyberbullying from going to far, parents and teachers need to pay more attention to changes in kids actions and moods.
