This week ‘In Conversation’: Preventing youth suicides
We examined the rise in teen suicides over the past decade and how we can better support young people in crisis.
In Kentucky, suicide is the second leading cause of death for teenagers and young adults. This week on “In Conversation,” we aimed to understand why, and what we can all do to help bring the numbers down.
Experts helped us untangle this complex health crisis about how to support the young people in your life.
If you or someone you know is struggling with thoughts of suicide, you can reach the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline by phone at 988, or online at 988lifeline.org.
You can also contact the Trevor Project, which provides free, confidential counselors who specialize in helping LGBTQ youth.
