Kidz Speak Hotline APP for Teens
Bullying in 2020 is at an all time high. Teens are being bullied through schools and even in neighborhoods. It is is growing at an alarming rate through social media. Suicide is the second largest cause of death between the ages of 10-24 which is alarming!
More teenagers and young adults die from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, pneumonia, influenza, and chronic lung disease, combined.Each day in our nation, there are an average of over 3,069 attempts by young people grades 9-12. If these percentages are additionally applied to grades 7 & 8, the numbers would be higher.
Four out of Five teens who attempt suicide have given clear warning signs. The Silent Voices Project has stepped up to make a difference. Our volunteers go through a thorough training to be come crisis mentors to help guide them through the tough times they may be experiencing.
