The suicide rate for teenagers is climbing. It is now the third leading cause of death among young people aged 15 24, and the second leading cause of death among college students. For every completed suicide, estimates assert that there are as many as 25 attempted suicides. As Christians, we want to be able to help those who consider or attempt suicide to choose a future and a hope instead. Why do so many of today s teenagers consider death their only option? How can we help teenagers learn other ways of dealing with their problems?
