Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0823928241, Hardcover)Coping with Teen Suicide is a self-help book for you, if you are a teenager. It is designed to help you or your troubled friends cope with stress, frustration and depression and to help you not commit suicide.
Some teenagers--and not other teenagers--are on the path to suicide or at the door of suicide. Those on the path to suicide have difficulties coping with stress, are depressed, turn their anger at other people against themselves, are preoccupied with the idea of death, give themselves only one of two choices, have unresolved grief over deaths in their family; and/or are influenced by family and friends to be self-destructive.
This book helps you, a teenager, not only get off the path to suicide and not kill yourself but also helps you get on the path to a happy, fulfilling, satisfying life and want to live. The four "F's" on this path are: (1) Feelings--finding constructive ways to express all of the human emotions and feelings, (2) Friends--developing many different kinds of friendships, (3) Functioning--doing something that you think is interesting and that society pays you to do, (4) Faith--believing in something that gives you a positive meaning and purpose to your life.
Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and friends of teenagers and those who work with teenagers may also obtain help from this book. If you have lost a loved one through suicide, there is a chapter in this book to guide you through the grief process.
