The Power to Prevent Suicide A Guide for Teens Helping Teens by Richard Nelson, Judith Galas

This practical book also explores the reasons why someone may want to take their own life, offers advice on the warning signs, explains when and how to seek help, and encourages teens to get their schools and local communities involved in suicide awareness and prevention. An intelligent and insightful volume, it acknowledges that teenagers do recognise when someone is deeply troubled, and care enough to reach out and help.


An excellent, practical manual -School Library Journal

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
