It is truly unfortunate that there are forces in this world that would seek to do harm to our youth. If you're a parent of a teen, it is vital that you take time to dialogue about suicide and self-harm. Even if your child would never hurt him or herself, they have undoubtedly been exposed or are aware of other kids that self-harm or have attempted suicide. Don't make the mistake of waiting too late, help is out there if you need it.
