We Need to Stop Teen Suicide

There is nothing worse than losing a loved one.  I recently lost my husband and I can tell you first hand it is devastating to me and everyone he knew.  Because I have felt and know the effects of losing a loved one first-hand, I want to be a strong voice in finding help and solutions for those considering suicide, especially amongst our teens.  Utah’s youth, ages 11 to 17, are dying at their own hands at three times the rate when compared to statistics from ten years ago.  We must fight this crisis in our schools and in our homes by doing all we can to prevent physical and online bullying, and we need to reach out and get our children the professional help they need.  When it comes to the safety of our children, there is no such thing as “doing too much.”
