Youth Suicide: I’m Paying Attention & Need Your Help

Because it’s about so much more than how we look, I need your help friends….

I’m paying attention – reading, listening, being open to the conversations that *continue* to come my way about the health and well being of our young people. Kids are struggling. Unsuspecting kids – are even struggling….This video/article is now finally moving me into reaching out to you.

Our youth is in need of more….I’m not claiming to have all the answers, I don’t. But I do want to offer up what I do have. In my research I’m gleaning that topics such as these and more are require more real and often conversation:

*family, friends, relationships
*teasing, bullying
*talking about appearance
*media, celebrity, and culture
*competing and comparing looks
*self respect

…All of these are anchored back in *identity* – something I struggled with as a young person coming up. My identity was tanked – leaving me wanting to end my life too- yet thankfully I worked through the layers, and now I value helping others connect with their authentic identity and celebrate vs. struggle in the dark….There is HOPE………

If your heart is tugging as mine is…or if you know of program directors, educators, associations, organizations that cater to the development of young people – moreover, if you have a name and contact number you can provide me, that would be appreciated.

Meeting with the Exec Dir of YMCA next week about a youth program to share for the Eastside community. …This feels like a good step.

Together, let’s make a difference for our young people. If not us, WHO?
