ANXIETY and SUICIDAL THOUGHTS ON THE RISE in Kids 5 – 19
PAUSE IS A PRACTICAL IN THE MOMENT TOOL THAT CAN
HELP AS STUDENTS, PARENTS, & TEACHERS HAVE TOLD US
These experiences in children and adults are inner experiences so they can
go unnoticed or are often misinterpreted by others. A person may not realize
that what they are experiencing is anxiety. They may think it’s “normal” so
they put up with it. Or, they feel that there’s something wrong with them, and
fear reaching out to talk with someone.
The result is things are left untreated and the consequences, well, we are
seeing the repercussions all around us.
1) Schools are gearing up for testing all students for anxiety using a
standardized Anxiety Scale because anxiety is on the rise in our kids.
A recent study by Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine
and Chicago Children’s Hospital reports:
2) Emergency rooms are reporting that they are seeing a 59% increase
in kids, ages 5 – 19, saying they are having suicidal thoughts.
3) Hospitalizations of kids with suicidal thoughts have increased by 57%.
Kids sense and feel what is going on around them in their environment,
in their bodies, the atmosphere within their family (including their
parent’s relationship), changing times with friends, and in the world.
Yes, kids are resilient AND they are developing, growing, questioning,
wondering, seeking belonging, and concerned for their safety.
