We are continually grateful for our introduction to Karen, and all that she has done for us.
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.
