An Evening to Celebrate Arizona’s Youth
Imagine a world where 60% of our teenagers have thought about suicide, 1 in 6 has made a suicide plan and nearly 1 in 10 has attempted suicide. Imagine a world where our teens are struggling with peer pressure, bullying, substance abuse, physical abuse, gang violence, and then… imagine limiting access to the resources teens need to deal with those stressors. Sadly…that world is a reality for most of our teens today. In 2014, one (1) child died by suicide every 8 days in Arizona.
But there is hope! Teen Lifeline is a safe, confidential, and crucial crisis service where teens help teens make healthy decisions together. The biggest thing that separates us from other crisis hotlines is the people who answer the phone. We understand that when a teen wants to talk about their problems, they would prefer to turn to another teen. That is what makes Teen Lifeline both unique and incredibly successful, teens helping teens. Established in 1986 in Arizona, our goal is to answer teens’ calls for help. Over the past 29 years, Teen Lifeline has served over half a million teens and families.
