Suicidal thoughts or attempts are not unusual for teenagers. It is a tumultuous time during which a young person is trying to figure out who she is and what her future will look like.
She is going through physical changes. She may be standing up to a tidal wave of peer pressure and struggling to make good choices. For young Hispanics, these struggles lead to more suicidal thoughts than their peers. It is a problem that is going unrecognized and needs to be brought to light.
