According to the CDC, suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people, resulting in about 4,400 deaths per year.
Bully victims are between 2 to 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims, according to studies by Yale University.
A study in Britain found that at least half of suicides among young people are related to bullying
10 to 14 year old girls may be at even higher risk for suicide, according to the study above
According to statistics reported by ABC News, nearly 30 percent of students are either bullies or victims of bullying, and 160,000 kids stay home from school every day because of fear of bullying

Join me as Haines, Founder of Stomp Out Suicide Sean Haines shares the experience of how his daughter's sucide is reaching others.
Stom Out Suicide was created out of love and hope in memory of Alissa M. Haines of Wyoming, MN. Stomp Out Suicide is a local organization dedicated to the prevention of suicide through public awareness and community outreach. Our goal is to educate and increase discussion about suicide prevention and awareness.
Suicide occurs most often in those who suffer from mental illnesses. Depression is the most common mental illness. Depression is not just a bad mood or a phase; it is a serious medical condition. In most cases depression and other mental illnesses can be treated, but the problem needs to be diagnosed by a professional. Suicide can have lasting harmful effects on individuals, families, and communities. While its causes are complex and determined by multiple factors, the goal of suicide prevention is simple: Reduce factors that increase risk, and increase factors that promote resilience.
One of the most important aspects of suicide prevention is support. The person who is struggling needs to know that you support and love him or her, and that you are willing to help them find hope in life again. Our goal at Stomp Out Suicide is to reach others like Alissa, and to prevent this tragedy from happening to people like her.

Charlotte View welcomes Mental Health Counselor, Life Coach, and Clinical Hypnotherapist, Nina Bingham. She is the author of the upcoming book "Once the Storm is Over" (February 2015) where she chronicles her descent into grief following the suicide of her teen daughter.
Did you know? Every 13.3 minutes someone in the U.S. commits suicide, making it the 10th leading cause of death for Americans.
In 2013 Nina's daughter secretly stopped taking her anti-depressant, and in the middle of the night hanged herself. Life as she knew it came to a screeching halt. Although she’d worked as a mental healthcare professional for over a decade, nothing she’d learned prepared her to lose her own daughter in such a devastating way.
This interview is intended as a suicide prevention tool. It is ideal to share it with everyone, including your kids. Listeners will:
be able to identify warning signs and risk factors in themselves or in their friends,
understand what to do if they or a friend is suicidal.
Listen about grief support and suicide prevention.
get the help and healing needed in your grief process.
Writing has been cathartic for author and counselor, Nina Bingham, and it has helped her to heal. So these days, she is a woman on a mission. While counseling has been a wonderful job, being an advocate for suicide prevention has become more than a job-I guess one could say it has become Nina's new calling in life. Please help Nina by sharing this FREE interview all over the Internet

This is our second episode with the remarkable healer, Carissa Schumacher and young, but wise, empath, teen Jayda Hammermeister. The topic of the show is youth suicide. We explore the signs and causes of teen suicide, how to prevent suicide if you are a friend or parent, and new perspectives on suicide. We delve deeply into the struggles that teens are facing that lead them to feeling trapped with no alternatives - a topic that parents don't always understand. We also talk about the spiritual side of these issues and how teens can take a bigger perspective on their life to see daily challenges as learning lessons and not a cause to end life. We also talk about the importance of a non-parent adult support person for youth - everyone should have one!
Join us to learn from these wise guests on this most critical important topic. The show includes a native healing song performed by Carissa. Don't miss it!
