Are There Schools for Suicidal Teens? – The School Solution

For those of you who are in desperate need of help for your suicidal teen, this article is for you. Here at The School Solution, we are constantly looking for the best program for your troubled teen’s unique problems. Teens will struggle with changing bodies, social pressures, and other concerns as a normal part of growing; however, suicidal tendencies should not be taken lightly. This is why educational consultant, Karen Mabie, will work tirelessly to find the correct program and schools for suicidal teens.

What Is Influencing Your Child?

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), “Suicide is the third leading cause of death among youth age 10-24.” This period of transition between adolescence and adulthood can be deeply challenging, especially with the increase of social media and added awareness of other people’s lives. Additionally, a new show called, 13 Reasons Why, has sparked more conversation and criticism regarding depression in teens. If you haven’t had the chance to see it, read a recap of it so you can be in-the-know if the show comes up with your teenager. While the show has increased awareness of the severity of depression, it has also created some backlash.

Even now, some mental health experts noted that this show could have a backlash for teens already suffering from depression. According to Alexa Curtis, founder of Media Impact and Navigation for Teens in an article for Rolling Stones, said the heavy material could make someone on the edge think, “Oh, that’s an easy way out. This is going to get me the attention I need. This what I have to do.” You can read more about the show from CNN.

Even though it is unlikely that a single TV show could trigger a depressed teen to take a grave step, there is a theory called “suicide contagion.” This means that those exposed to someone’s suicidal behavior or images could lead to copycat behavior. If you have noticed suicidal tendencies and language in your teen’s life, now is the time for positive action. Seeking out the help of Karen Mabie, with The School Solution, is the first step in the right direction.

How Can an Educational Consultant Help My Suicidal Teen?

We understand this is a trying and difficult time for you and your family. No one expects to end up in this position, and it’s important to know you are not alone in this struggle.
