September is Suicide Prevention Month
September is national Suicide Prevention Month, and we want to encourage parents to have an open conversation about mental health. Parents can help create an environment where students want to talk with them by normalizing the conversation regarding feelings of depression or anxiety that may be hidden. Depression is not a character flaw; instead, it is a serious mental health disorder that is treatable. Review the tips, from Signs of Suicide, on how to encourage teens to talk and prompt participants to share their tips to get teens to open up about mental health.
Teen-led family meetings; let your teen set the agenda.
Playing a game; this makes teens more comfortable talking about a difficult topic.
If the subject comes up in a movie or TV show, have a discussion about it.
Out for a walk; the relaxed atmosphere can make it easier for some teens to open up.
Taking a drive; sometimes it’s easier to talk about difficult topics without eye contact.
Continuing the conversation or have multiple mini conversations on a regular basis instead of one big talk.
Enlist other trusted adults; sometimes a grandparent or trusted aunt/uncle can break through when parents have been shut out.
If you have additional questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to the DCMS school counselor Jordan LeFevre, email@example.com or 706-216-4849 x1333
