You Could Help Save a Teen’s Life

April 28, 2017

After Netflix released its popular “Thirteen Reasons Why” original series about a girl who killed herself, the topic of suicide has become viral.

However, suicide has unfortunately already gone viral among teenagers in the United States. According to The Jason Foundation,

  • Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for teens.
  • More teens die from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, pneumonia, influenza, and chronic lung disease, COMBINED.
  • Each day in the United States, over 5,240 teenagers attempt suicide.
  • Four out of five teens who attempt suicide have given clear warning signs.

 

If you work with youth, it’s not IF you will have a conversation with a teenager about suicide, but WHEN.

Are you prepared? Do you know what to say? Do you know who to contact or what to do?

To help equip adults and volunteers with how to have conversations with depressed or suicidal teens, I wrote a book that provides 13 steps to help triage hurting teens. Download your free copy here.

I have also put together a 3-week sermon series to help youth pastors teach about how to deal with anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts in a healthy and godly way. Download the sermon series for free here.
