As clinicians, we are often charged with talking about uncomfortable topics with our clients. And today, we'd like to face a challenging and complicated topic head on: teen suicide.
Producers of the controversial Netflix show “13 Reasons Why,” including pop star Selena Gomez, said their desire was to help teens and start a conversation about rising mental health struggles in youth today.
…but did they start the right conversation, or did they glamorize suicide?
Whether you find the show compelling or troublesome, one thing is certain: We need to talk about the rise of teen suicide and trauma in kids and teens.
That’s why we’re inviting you to a free, one hour online CE event presented by Meagan Houston, Ph.D., designed for clinicians, educators, and even parents to learn how to talk about suicide and mental health with teens.
