Suicidal Thoughts - What You Need to Know with Lori Wildenberg
**A gentle warning, this episode discusses suicide. If you are feeling vulnerable in this area, please consult with a doctor or mental health professional in your area. Or call one of the Suicide Prevention numbers listed in the resources.** Do you notice your child withdrawing or making irrational decisions? Do you wonder why they are acting this way? Are they just having a bad day, or is there something more? In this episode, I'm talking with Lori Wildenberg about the alarming statistics, risk factors, and warning signs of suicidal ideation. Lori is a licensed parent and family educator, MOMS Better Together Podcast Co-Host, parent consultant, certified teacher, co-founder of 1 Corinthians 13 Parenting Ministry, national speaker, and author of six parenting books. "We've got to be asking our kids, 'How are you doing? How are you doing TODAY?' Ask them specifically so that they know that you're ready for that answer." – Lori Wildenberg Topics covered in this episode: Guest introduction (:28) Teenage suicide statistics (:57) Facts about teen and young adult suicide (2:27) Paying attention and real conversations (2:46) Impact of the internet (5:00) Teen suicide risk on the rise (6:01) Warning signs (8:19) Real-life examples of risk factors (13:26) Keeping connections open (15:10) Next episode preview: a personal testimony (17:39) Closing thoughts (18:00) We hope that this episode has helped you recognize potential risk factors and signs to watch for.
