Keiski acknowledges that, “Individual therapy with a psychologist or psychiatrist is probably the most common form of treatment for people suffering from any sort of depression or need help through a crisis.” (95). In most cases, suicide is a result of how lonely the victim may feel since they may not fully receive the love and care they deserve. Hence, it is important that professional caretakers reach out to them since they may feel too embarrassed of their negative thoughts. Directly connecting to this idea, most times family members and friends are not too sure about how to address this with the victim since they do not really know how to help.
Analysis of Suicide in Adolescent Teens Suicide is becoming an increasingly larger social issue in today 's society, and is affecting all lives in one way or another. It is not a topic that is discussed as much as other social topics and a lot of the time, it’s awareness is only talked about when someone committed the act. Suicide is the act of an individual taking their own life. Many families of people who have committed this act have plenty of questions regarding suicide, such as “Why does this happen?”, or “How could we have helped them?”. This issue is very high in adolescent nowadays, and the rates are increasing.
The Issue with Physician Assisted Suicide Physician-assisted suicide is the act of a physician prescribing a patient medication that allows the patient to kill themselves. Normally it is only given to patients with terminal illness, but the act of assisted suicide is on the rise for other diseases like depression. It is only legal in 5 states in America. Physician-assisted suicide should be made illegal across all states because it is offensive to social groups, causes doctors’ jobs to become more challenging, and it opposes patient freedom.
“The one place of connection that has the potential to be most stable for all children, teens, and adults alike is the family environment.” Teen suicide has many reasons behind it, some people may not know. Based on Judith Peacock’s research on the subject, “No one is sure why more teens today are taking their own life” (Peacock pg.1). More suicides have been happening without explanation…. Or maybe the answer has always been under our noses.
There are effective crisis intervention strategies used for each of the three degrees of suicidal client. 1) Effective crisis intervention strategies used for low-risk suicidal clients include; educational interventions, including bibliotherapy and reel therapy that pertains to people who have dealt with and overcome suicidality, reframing the situation, an informal no-suicide contract, and the use of empowering supportive comments (Kanel, 2014). 2) Effective crisis intervention strategies used for middle-risk suicidal clients include; no-suicide contract, suicide watch which could include family members when available, daily visits or phone calls, and only as a last resort, hospitalization (Kanel, 2014). 3) Effective crisis intervention strategies
An client 's response to a crisis can include emotional reactions (fear, anger, guilt, grief ), mental reactions (difficulty concentrating, confusion, nightmares), physical reactions (headaches, dizziness, fatigue , stomach problems), and behavioural responses (sleep and appetite problems, isolation, restlessness). Assessment of the client 's potential for suicide and/or homicide is also conducted. Also, information about the client 's strengths, coping skills, and social support networks is
Through an analysis of data, on why teens commit suicide, it has been shown that those teens were uneducated on how to cope with their problems and their own self worth in the world. Suicide comes from many factors. It comes from a whirlwind of negative things happening, piling up on oneself, then soon falling over on the person causing them to become emotionally drained down to the core. At this point the only way of responding to end their pain is by committing suicide. Although, there are already so many organizations to help with depressed individuals who have thoughts of themselves committing suicide the congress itself is not doing enough to reduce teen suicide rates. The congress needs to increase the education on suicide awareness
Not only is the treatment time consuming but running to the doctor can take a lot of time. Usually, when I go to a doctor, ninety minutes out of my day is involved between waiting to see the doctor, the actual visit, and follow up. Doctor visits are not usually the only visit required; nursing visits, therapy, and lab tests also take several hours a day. Again, a lot of wasted time.
Suicide. The action of killings oneself intentionally. A word synonymous with despair and tragedy, this act may be taken due to several reasons but if focused on a particular demographic, such as college students, the reasons may be clearer. It is widely accepted that causes of suicides are largely (if not completely) mentally related. With high amounts of stress and pressure coupled with ever amounting expectations on still developing minds, it does not seem difficult to correlate why the rates of suicide among college students is steadily increasing. Besides the lacking mental fortitude, these feelings of inadequacy and worthlessness within students, which may cause depression and even suicide, is caused by social or personal pressure from oneself or by their peers.

Over the years the issue of suicide has been slowly increasing. It is now the third leading cause of death among young people. The effects of suicide are tragic and felt long after the individual has taken their own life. Some people who consider suicide, however, never make a “serious” attempt at it. For every attempted suicide, there is said to be more than one person whose thought of suicide has never translated into an actual attempt.
Suicides have declined in recent years the problem is that they are still happening in jails and prisons. It may not be addressed in the media as much as it should be, however the problem is still there. Without the proper care inmates at times may not understand their circumstances, mentally ill inmates face a harder time with the reduction of mental hospitals. This transition period is especially hard for first time offenders who may not know how long it may take to be seen by a judge, or how long it will be till bail is posted. Nearly of all the suicides that occur half of them happen during the first week in jail ().
As of 2015, 5 in 100,000 girls and 14 in 100,000 teenagers commit suicide (Lewis). Teenagers are becoming more vulnerable and schools seem to be taking no notice. If these lives could be saved, it would help so many families across the united states. The National Institute of Mental Health states that there “are as many as 25 attempts of suicide to every one that is actually committed” (Eco Child’s Play). Suicides can be prevented by treatment of the illness.
