CINCINNATI (WKRC) – Health care providers are sounding the alarm with a new campaign aimed at asking questions to help prevent suicide as teen suicide numbers continue to climb.

Tuesday is #NationalSuicidePreventionDay, and #mentahealthspecialists at the #CenterforSuicidePrevention and Research at Nationwide Children’s Hospital now say since half of all #mentalhealthissues start by the age of 14, parents and others should begin asking young people directly if they are thinking of taking their own life.

Nationwide Children’s says to help #teens open up about their emotions, they recommend you don’t wait for a crisis and you check in regularly with kids about thoughts of wanting to end their life.

#JamesDonaldsononMentalHealth – 

Welcome to the “next chapter” of my life… being a voice and an advocate for #mentalhealthawarenessandsuicideprevention, especially pertaining to our younger generation of students and student-athletes.

Getting men to speak up and reach out for help and assistance is one of my passions. Us men need to not suffer in silence or drown our sorrows in alcohol, hang out at bars and strip joints, or get involved with drug use.

Having gone through a recent bout of #depression and #suicidalthoughts myself, I realize now, that I can make a huge difference in the lives of so many by sharing my story, and by sharing various resources I come across as I work in this space.  #http://bit.ly/JamesMentalHealthArticle


It’s also suggested by these experts and those at the Lindner Center of Hope in Mason that some early warning signs include changes in mood, feelings of hopelessness and even if kids talk about bullying or don’t appear to recover from being bullied in the past. Dr. Shana Feibel from the center says many people do carry baggage from past bullying and that people don’t realize how much of an impact bullying can make.

If someone you love is thinking about #suicide, you can reach out to the Lindner Center of Hope here, or you can call the #NationalSuicidePreventionLifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). There’s also a crisis text line by texting “Start” to 741-741.
