The Power to Prevent Suicide : A Guide for Teens Helping Teens
This practical book also explores the reasons why teens may want to take their own life, offers advice on the warning signs, explains when and how to seek help, and encourages teens to get their schools and local communities involved in suicide awareness and prevention. An intelligent and insightful volume, it acknowledges that teenagers do recognise when someone is deeply troubled, and care enough to reach out and help.
