Suicide rates for those ages 10 to 24 have more than doubled from 2007 to 2017, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control. It is the leading cause of death for that age bracket. What leads to these tragedies and how can parents be vigilant for their own children’s mental health? Clinical psychologist Dr. Deb Gorton joins Chris to examine these questions and offer insight and hope for those who struggle and those who are left behind.
