Suicide Warning Signs in Children and Teens

Suicide is a serious and real concern among children and teens. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among youth ages 10-24. Suicide attempts are often related to other mental health conditions, but not always. Particularly among younger children, suicide attempts can be impulsive. Warning signs of suicide or suicidal statements should always be taken seriously and evaluated by a mental health professional. Suicidal feelings are treatable with appropriate intervention and support.
