Why Suicide Prevention?

One of the hidden and less discussed impacts of our COVID pandemic is the toll it is taking on the mental health of our young people. 

A study of American Medical Association indicates that more than 75% of parents are unaware of suicidal ideation in their child. Meanwhile, The Centers of Disease Control has reported considerably elevated levels of suicidal ideation in younger adults associated with COVID-19. Whether or not you suspect depression or suicidal thoughts in your child, you can take steps to help prevent suicide in your child.  With Focus on the Family FREE online resource, Alive to Thrive, you’ll learn about issues that can lead to suicide, and we’ll teach you how to address them long before your child might ever entertain thoughts of ending his or her life.
