Readers’ Corner: Mental Health Resources

For National Suicide Prevention Week, our featured booklist focuses on Mental Health Resources.

In Washington State, suicide is the second leading cause of death among teens. A group of more than 100 parents, teens, and other community members gathered at the Edmonds Library in April to discuss this serious topic and find out what kinds of resources are available for mental health support. An archived video of the Issues That Matter forum on teen suicide and depression is available on the Sno-Isle Libraries Facebook page.

Everyone has the power to help someone with mental health issues or suicidal thoughts. The first step is having the conversation.
