Teen Suicide

There was a tragic incident in West Richland this past weekend where a 13-year-old boy took his own life. Teen Suicide is the third leading cause of death of teens in the USA. This is such a difficult time for many teens that they choose the only way out they see to escape the pain.

I got the chance to sit down with a local reporter to talk about suicide.

For more information on suicide prevention and the warning signs to look for, check out the American Association of Suicidology.
