Suicide Both sides of this killer to YOUR teens and ADULTS

Imagine walking into school have the teacher tell to go to the principal’s office. You know you did nothing wrong but when you walk in you see your best friend’s parents crying. Confused you sit down. Your principal hands you a note and gives you the devastating news that your friend has committed suicide. That would suck right? We can stop it and make sure no one goes through that horrible moment and feeling.

Many parents or guardians of teens who are going through depression do not put in the factors of suicidal thoughts. Which include, one or more suicide attempts, family history of mental illness or substance abuse, family history of suicide, family violence, physical or sexual abuse, exposure to suicidal behavior, and keeping firearms at home.

These symptoms many people don't notice until it's too late. Teens and adults may be going through depression because of family history or abuse, this is why people need to be more aware of how these symptoms affect the victim and everyone around.
