Teenager tried to overdose

Hi @kaybird – I would like to add my welcome to Connect along with @lisalucier and others, and let you know that you are not alone. Many years ago when our son was in his late teens he tried to commit suicide by driving his truck off the road at a high speed. Fortunately he was not successful and we were able to get help for him. We were able to find a great local support group with other parents facing similar situations with the mental health of their children and it was good to be able to share with each other. We found the group through the National Alliance for Mental Health (NAMI) – https://www.nami.org/Find-Support/NAMI-Programs/NAMI-Connection.

I found an article that may provide more information and resources for you here:
