Suicide is one of our most preventable form of death and yet it is the second cause of death for Ohio teens. September is Suicide Prevention & Awareness Month. Real Talk Live 216 wants to talk about this topic that many individuals at times really DON'T want to talk about but it's a conversation that is desperately needs to take place rather SOONER than LATER.

This weeks show is dedicated to suicide prevention day which was September 10th. It is difficult for adults to understand what would motivate a young person to take his/her own life. Changes in the behavior of a child are often seen as a phase they are going through-just a part of adolescence. This may or may not be the case. As parents and adults we need to be able to talk openly with our youth. Some youth in pain see suicide as their only option. We need to be able to recognize signs of concern and know how to react and get professional help if needed.
The first thing we need to do is to be well informed about the “Silent Epidemic” of youth suicide. Suicide is Preventable.

Suicide is a sacred matter of life and death. As a result, due to the heartfelt comments, emails and outpouring of last week's show, Dr. Kemp has elected to extend this topic for one more week, offering an encore presentation for anyone that missed the show and is suffering with depression and suicidal thoughts. Her book: From Psychotherapy to Sacretherapy ...." offers an extra bonus chapter on alternative holistic ways to deal with depression and suicidal thoughts in an attempt to assist the national agenda of healing depression. A topic that has been widely discussed throughout the world, in the news this month, due to the recent suicides of Simone Battle and Robin Williams, both of who Dr. Kemp has had separate shows in honor of. So if you know someone that is suffering with depression or angry a lot of the time, PLEASE send them the link to this show and the one dedicated to Robin. It could save their life!
Anyone with questions or comments are free to send your questions via www.drameliakemp.com (Radio Show link) and she will answer your questions next week on the show. Otherwise, please feel free to contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline Hotline at 1-800-273-8255.

Helping A Friend
Brian has just returned to his dorm room after his girlfriend Jennifer has broken up with him. His roommate Jack, who has noticed that Brian has seemed depressed for the past several weeks, recognizes Brian’s withdrawn and sullen demeanor yet again. Jack decides to ask him how he is doing.
What Can You Do to Help a Friend?
Know the warning signs! Read over the list above and keep it in a safe place.
Do not be afraid to talk to your friends. Listen to their feelings. Make sure they know how important they are to you, but don’t believe you can keep them from hurting themselves on your own. Preventing suicide will require adult help.
Make no deals. Never keep secret a friend's suicidal plans or thoughts. You can not promise that you will not tell—you have to tell to save your friend!
Tell an adult. Talk to your parent, your friend's parent, your school’s psychologist or counselor-- a trusted adult. And don’t wait! Don’t be afraid that the adults will not believe you or take you seriously—keep talking until they listen! Even if you are not sure your friend is suicidal, talk to someone. It’s OK if you “jump the gun”—this is definitely the time to be safe and not sorry!
Ask if your school has a crisis team. Many schools have organized crisis teams, which include teachers, counselors, social workers, psychologists and principals.
