If you talk about suicide, will your teen be more likely to attempt to take their life? Research shows that talking about suicide actually reduces the likelihood that the person will make an attempt.
With suicide as the third-leading cause of death among youth age 15 to 24, suicide prevention is a topic that parents and guardians of teens can’t ignore. Although it may feel overwhelming, when you have knowledge and resources, you can play an essential role in preventing teen suicides.
Register now for our webinar on Thursday, September 15, 2022 from 7:00 PM ET to 8:30 PM ET. Dr. Kiara Alvarez will share how parents and caring adults can identify warning signs of mental health crisis and suicide, communicate with teens about suicide prevention, and encourage teens to seek help.
