The JOI Foundation recently added the Patrick Heinold Foundation as one of our beneficiaries. Teen suicide is on the rise across the nation. The data appeared in The Journal of Pediatrics, and comes from poison control centers. A study finds the rate of poisoning attempts more than doubled among boys and girls.
There is no single cause to suicide. It most often occurs when stressors exceed current coping abilities of someone suffering from a mental health condition.
