I'm sure I'm not the only one who has been sickened and saddened by the news stories of teen suicides that have burdened us of late, and this is just the tip of the iceberg.
I could quote statistics but what's the point. We all know the score. We're losing our children, and that's just not acceptable. What kind of world have we created in which our children can bear to live? It is our responsibility as adults to change that, to make our children safe.
On my Young Adult blog Rainbow Warriors, I've compiled a list of resources for young people who are being bullied, abused or simply feeling the pressure. Young people who can't see a way out. Please share, add to and make available, if not this list then resources of your own.
If young people don't feel they can reach out to us, then we must reach out to them
