The total horror of the number of young people commiting suicide.

In the last month 2 of my friends have known a young person who ended their life.
Where are we going wrong ? Is it the media , is it lack of empathy, I have no idea . All I do know is this should not be happening to our future generations.

Also, don't fall into the trap of the saying 'Those who threaten to do it never do.' Yes they do.

A very good point Kate.
At present GD of a friend - now 18 - sanctioned at 15 living in a psychiastric hostel/ hospital whatever.
Has continually stated she will take her own life and on the few times she was allowed home has attempted to do just that. It is a total nightmare and after 3 years of therapy nothing has changed. I despair.
