Below is a typical list of warning signs exhibited by teens at risk for suicide. But this is only a first step. You need to add your own observations and opinions about what spells danger for your kids.

  • A change in friends or the amount of time spent with friends.
  • Sudden change in behaviour
  • Dramatic change in appetite.
  • Sleeping difficulties or sleeping too much.
  • Problems at school.
  • Inability to concentrate or sit still
  • Confused thought processes; inability to `think straight`.
  • Unexplained loss of energy or wild variations in energy levels.
  • Increased alcohol or other drug use.
  • Constant feeling of worthlessness or self-hatred, which may be covered up.
  • Excessive risk-taking such as driving recklessly, alcohol use, sex without contraception.
  • Misuse of sex and physical relationships.
  • Preoccupation with death, dying or suicide.
  • Giving away personal or prized possessions.
  • Family history of depression and suicide - the most telling signs.
