Suicide Prevention and Teen Mental Health | Rick Capriola

September 18, 2022

September is National Suicide Prevention Month and what would you do if you found out your child searched online, “How to kill myself”. Every parent MUST hear this interview.

According to Baylor college of medicine, an article last November stated, “The pandemic uniquely impacted adolescents. Social isolation, constant uncertainty, stress, and fear have plagued their lives. According to the CDC, teenage emergency room visits for suicide attempts increased significantly during the pandemic, with a 50% rise in cases in females and almost 4% increase in males.”

In this episode you will learn:

  • Be attentive to where your child is spending their time.
  • Be a good role model. Take care of your own mental health. Your child(ren) is learning from watching how you take care of yourself.
  • Questions to ask your child to gauge their mental health state
  • Being vulnerable is powerful
  • Children need a stable relationship with an adult
