Most do not actually complete suicide; however, teens may certainly have very strong thoughts and feelings about it. Suicide ideation needs to be addressed immediately. There can be so many factors leading up to this. School peers (teen peer pressure) can be brutal without even knowing it. A teen can feel alienated from their family and friends when they are suffering from depression and low self esteem. Many times, their pain is masked and it is hard to determine what a teen is thinking or feeling.

A person can say something innocent and the teen takes it completely out of context. The feeling of rejection, either by a boyfriend/girlfriend or their own peers, can be devastating to a teen. The teen most likely lacks the self-esteem and confidence to realize that they are special and important. When this happens, the teen can experience feelings of depression which can lead to harmful thoughts.

teens 3Sometimes, we have seen a family going through some very difficult times, whether it is financial or marital issues and the child actually takes on the blame and the guilt without realizing these adult problems are not related to them. The weight of family burdens on their minds can overwhelm a child with emotions so that they feel at a total loss.

If you suspect your child is suicidal, please get help immediately. They may need a residential program that offers positive peer culture and the help they need. They need to build up their character to a higher sense of self worth. Suicidal ideation is to be taken extremely seriously. As a parent, reach out for help; there are many people willing to listen and guide you. Please refer to www.fisponline.org for vital information on suicide.
