5 Teens Speak Out About Suicide (Video Slideshow)

5 Teens Speak Out About Suicide (Video Slideshow)
  • 1 of 5

This week is National Suicide Prevention Week, a time in which there is a particular focus on teen suicides. When dealing with this issue, what we often don’t get to hear are the voices of young people actually speaking for themselves about their experiences.

With that in mind these five videos spread over the coming pages, all recorded in the past year, are made by teenagers who talk about dealing with suicide and suicidal thoughts and also their joy and relief at working through their problems with the help and support of loved ones and experienced adults.

My Story by Hellocupcake96

This young woman is recording a video diary throughout Suicide Prevention Month. She has dealt with depression, self-harm and suicidal thoughts due to verbal and online bullying. Having worked through some of her problems, she is now making a video for others.

You can follow her video diaries here.

This should be a program that is instituted as mandatory in all schools!!! If the school boards across this Nation have time to teach 5 & 6 year old's how to put condoms on cucumbers, then by God, they need to spend their attentions and focus on using that "wasted" money on programs where children and young people, have a outlet and venue to pull together for the saving on their very lives! This useless crap of covering cucumbers with condoms is basically understood by those children, as equal to no more a mental capability, then that of playing...Lets dress the poor cucumber so it doesn't get cold.
