Did You Know? (We Can Start the Conversation)




As a teen, I had a lot of problems with school being bullied. I also experienced high anxiety and depression. I had suicidal thoughts and felt like there was no help for me. I understand what it means to be a kid with depression and anxiety. This is extremely important to me to be able to tell kids that it will get better. The conversation about kids and mental health can be difficult because unfortunately, it can lead to suicide. This poem talks about a conversation between two individuals about a girl who attempted suicide but was lucky enough to survive. But this is not always the case. If talking to kids about mental health can lead to saving their lives, then the sometimes uncomfortable conversation will be worth it.
