It’s Tragic with a capital “T” that even after losing so many teenagers from suicide that parents or even schools do not pay much attention to mental health and suicide.
I am very dismayed how the situation is being handled. Many teenagers are not only depressed but they also carry many mental illnesses that should be cared for and treated. Saying this, adults don’t realize that teenagers are not just “sad,” but they require help at times.
Ladies and gentlemen, we must take a stand for these kids. We should not only pay attention to academics or sports or even “popular” kids in school or even outside of school. Teenagers with mental illness deserve a voice. We deserve to be happy!
