In A Brief Guide to Teen Suicide Prevention, new author Kathy Harris Henderson presents practical steps caregivers, family members, loved ones, and friends can take to reach out to those at-risk. Dr. Henderson's passion for the topic began in tragedy: her own daughter took her life at age sixteen. The book begins with an account of that tragedy. Henderson follows up with chapters addressing the roles of parents, teens, schools, and faith communities in addressing the epidemic. She then examines the development of teenagers' will and conscience, chronological brain development in children and teens, and statistics related to teen suicide. The book closes with a powerful chapter entitled "What I Learned."
Though written from a Christian perspective, the book's insights are universally applicable to the topic. The work also includes contact information for teens and parents. If you or someone you know are considering suicide, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, toll-free, twenty-four hours a day, at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
