Episode Info

Episode Info:

In this special episode, I am publishing one of my recent Facebook Live videos as a podcast in honor of September being National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month.

I talk about the top 13 reasons why your teen might end their life through suicide. I also discuss the signs of suicidal behavior and who is at most risk.

It is a very special episode more so because my primary focus is teen suicide, and my primary avatar is parents and caregivers and they are the ones I am speaking with directly here. 

Suicide is, however, everybody's problem. The sooner we all see that, the better. 

For the rest of the month of September (and every day henceforth) do something to help lower the rate of suicide in the world. It is so easy to call someone, text someone, go to lunch with them, and look into their eyes, really ask them how they are doing, and LISTEN. Hug someone, smile at someone and offer to take them to get help in the event that they do confide in you.... Finally, tell them you love them, because, the greatest of the gifts is love. If they ask you why you are being so kind, empathetic and compassionate with them, tell them Dr. Lulu sent you :)

I am especially thankful to all the guests, and listeners of this podcast, as well as all my followers on social media and in real life, THANK YOU!

Thank you, thank and thank you again for over 1,200 downloads in 10 weeks!
