Suicide is the third-leading cause of death among people ages 15 to 24. All across America, suicide "clusters" appear when one teenager's death starts a chain reaction. Young people tend to be impulsive and suggestible, so when a first death becomes romanticized, it can start a cluster of other suicides.
What might the church and Christians do to prevent such an outbreak of teen suicides? For starters, pastors, youth leaders, teachers and especially parents should discuss the subject -- even if it seems unlikely to occur among their kids.
