We are seeing more and more adolescents attempting and committing suicide. One way to help reduce suiced attempts among depressed teens is to help identify at risk teens. A new screening tool that helps identify at risk teens could help. NIMH has developed a new screening tool used in Emergency Departments to help screen at risk teens. A community health nurse can help screen at risk teens and families as well a providing education to teachers to help screen at risk teens.

It is incredible the number of teens that attempting suicide. So sad that things such as bullying and social pressure can push these kids to this limit. It is so important to identify these "at-risk" teens, as you pointed out. But I'm sure that many of them also fall through the cracks of this identification process. Sometimes, I feel that these ideas come on quickly and are executed before anyone has the chance to identify these kids. I feel it would also be important to address the things that are pushing these adolescents to these limits. Whether it is bullying, social media, or drugs, these things must also be addressed and dealt with.

checking their phones or social media pages for fear of missing something important. This also has been shown to create a paranoia among people, stalking, and bullying opportunities. This can snowball into something much worse. For some unknown reason people are more apt to be bold on line than in person...~Dr Hamilton

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
