Suicide is clearly a big issue among teens as seen in this infographic. It is one of the leading causes of death in teens and millions of people suffer every year. Teen suicide is an issue that needs to be addressed and fixed.

Suicide is a huge problem in the United States, although not many people talk about it or understand the vastness of this problem. Depression, anxiety, and suicide plague teens of the United States, and of Georgia. It is important to educate people on the severity of this problem of suicide and depression so we can work toward a brighter future.
