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.
