Preventing Youth Suicide:Tips for Parents & Educators. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among school age youth. However, suicide is preventable. Youth who are contemplating suicide frequently give warning signs of their distress. Parents, teachers, and friends are in a key position to pick up on these signs and get help.

At the Attachment & Trauma Network, it is our mission to promote healing of traumatized children and their families through support, education and advocacy. We welcome the participation of all traumatized children, their parents, professionals who work with traumatized children, and interested parties.
