In contemporary times, teen suicides are in the rise. They are consequences of chronic depression and anxiety among children due to various reasons. Many children and adolescents have emotional difficulties, and the majority proportion of them never get the help they need. When a child doesn't get the help he needs, there are some emotional difficulties that can lead to more serious psychological trauma, and in serious cases, even to a lifetime of confusion, hardship, and pain.
