September is National Suicide Prevention Month. All month, mental health advocates, prevention organizations, survivors, allies, and community members unite to promote suicide prevention awareness.

 

Suicide is the second leading cause of death for youth ages 10 to 24. According to the 2011 Youth Risk Behavioral Survey in Tennessee, over 1 out of 7 youth seriously considered suicide and almost 1 out of 16 made an attempt. Almost all young people who are contemplating suicide show clear signs before the attempt. If educators are trained to recognize these signs, we have a good chance to identify and help at risk youth.
