Want to read a frightening statistic about teenage Suicide?
The Centers for Disease Control reported recently that "...the suicide rate rose more than 18% in those 1 to 19 years old, from 2.2 per 100,000 in 2003 to 2.6 per 100,000 in 2004. In those 15 to 19 years old, the figures reflected a more than 12% rise in suicide, from 7.3 per 100,000 in 2003 to 8.2 per 100,000 in 2004."
Scary, isn't it?
Even if you have no teenagers at home, you probably know many families that do.
You can help these families and their teenagers. How?
Visit the "Speak Up Save Lives" for access to information and resources to help save lives and combat the "silent epidemic" of suicide.
Thanks for caring ... Richard
