Since the 1960s, the rate of suicide among adolescents has tripled. Suicide is now the second leading cause of death for those between 15 and 24. These shocking statistics make it clear that young people need help learning how to survive their hard times. Reassuring and honest, Dying Is Not an Option informs teens about the specific warning signs of suicide and uses real teen speakers to get its points across. The video encourages viewers to appreciate that--even during periods of despair--there are ways to reach out and avoid the cycles of rebellion and isolation that can often lead to desperate acts. Viewers are reminded of the formidable healing power of the human spirit, and the often-overlooked fact that we can help one another through desperate moments.
