The town where I went to high school is only very small, but it has one of the highest teen suicide rates in Australia. That statistic includes a few of my closest friends and neighbors. I’ve moved away now for college, but I’m studying psychology and youth work so that after I graduate I will hopefully have the tools to move back there and do everything I can to change this statistic.
Recently, though, I almost completely lost faith after a young boy who I used to babysit killed himself at only 13 years old. Then I found this website, and it’s shown me that there is also hope. I have already sent the link to my old high school principal to hopefully give him some ideas. HMGGMH
