What to do when a six year old climbs out the window of your kindergarten classroom threatening to jump three stories to the concrete below?

What do you say to a seven year old girl …with scarred arms that is obviously cutting herself repeatedly with a knife or razor?

Kendrea (6) and Gabriel (7) successfully hung themselves a few years ago.  They came from different states but suffered the same afflictions.

Only one out a hundred very young children are successful in their suicide attempts as it is not easy to do.

Traumatized by rape and torture in their birth homes and forced onto mind numbing Prozac like drugs in foster care (court orders).  Kendrea lived close to me.  Gabriel wrote very articulately about killing himself because he despised being forced onto Prozac like drugs.

One of my CASA Guardian ad Litem case kids was tied to a bed, beaten starved and raped (repeatedly over four years) after he was returned to his biological father.  The last time I remember crying (about 10 years ago) was when that boy told me about his plan to suicide by cop.

This boy had tried multiple times to kill himself as my case child.  What’s it like to be that cop?  What’s it like to be that teacher, social worker or guardian ad Litem?

Child suicide attempts, cutting and a dozen other forms of self-harm are almost never known outside of child protection.

With almost no public reporting or transparency, very few people ever know about how hard state ward children exhibit self-hate, practice self-harm and try to kill themselves.

Child abuse lasts forever – this suicide note explains it pretty well.

Eric, John, Mary & thousands of children just like them have been and are being raped, beaten and tortured every month.

KARA has followed and reported their stories HERE since the early 2000’s.

 

Childhood & Adolescent Suicide & Abuse: In Current Literature

The National Poison Data System, researchers found more than 1.6 million cases of 10- to 24-year-olds attempting to kill themselves by poisoning from 2000 to 2018. More than 70% of the suicide attempts by poisoning were in young women.

U.S. youth emergency psychiatric hospitalizations and suicide attempts are escalating at alarming rates.

Among children between the ages of 5 and 17, annual emergency department encounters for suicidal ideations and attempts have more than doubled from 2008 (0.66%) to 2015 (1.82%)7. That equates to an increase of 35,266 encounters for SI or SA during the period of 2008-11 to 80,590 encounters from 2012-2015.

Adolescents who had more than one suicide attempt prior to their initial hospitalization were 102% more likely to be re-hospitalized within 5 years for a suicide attempt than adolescents who had no prior attempts.
