Teenage Suicide

I'm running an anti-suicide campaign to create and promote support services for teenagers. I want to promote awareness of the issues surrounding suicide and create a better support system within schools.

I feel that the media coverage surrounding recent teen suicides was shameful, and from experience I know that the support system in place is inadequate. When someone at my school committed suicide no-one knew how to deal with it.

Suicide is one of the most common causes of death among male teenagers, and it is shocking that we as a country have afforded little attention to the issue.

Instead of blaming social networking sites and bands for teenage suicide I want to involve bands to help reach out to young people. Society needs to become less ignorant of teenage depression.
