The COVID-19 pandemic has brought increased awareness to the issue of youth suicide in Alabama, where suicide is the second leading cause of death among young people.

The Alabama Department of Mental Health reports that teen suicide affects people of all races, genders, and nationalities, and it can happen to anyone at any time.

In 2020, Alabama recorded a total of 793 suicide attempts, with 100 of those being young people between the ages of ten and 24.

The pandemic has had a major impact on mental health, with depression, anxiety, and isolation being some of the warning signs to look out for.

Experts recommend having conversations with young people about suicide and how to recognize the warning signs, and organizations like Fine Arts Find Life are providing resources and safe spaces for young people to address mental health and suicide.

The pandemic has brought about greater awareness of this issue, and it is important to continue talking about it and providing support for those in need.
