Hi my name is Courtney I am trying to find other parents to talk to who's teen or teens are suicidal. My 17 year old son just hit his second attempt this past Monday and on his second behavior hospital stay. I'm trying to find local groups in my area for the parents of suicidal teens but cannot find anything the only resources I have are joint therapy sessions with my son. But I need a place to talk with other parents going through this Please! If anyone is going through something like this please message me thank you

We are doing ok. Therapy is going good for both my son & I. And this crazy Pokémon go thing seams to be helping my son's depression as well as his anxiety. Also his communication with me, he has included his sister and I on his hunts for Pokémon. Thank you so much for asking and checking up on us. The thought is truly appreciated

I understand the struggle and unexplainable pain bc I too have 2 teenage daughters , both with mental health issues, both have been hospitalized and both have attempted suicide. I have tried to reach out to others and find EVERY resource available in my city but unfortunately there really isn't much out there. I can't begin to describe the frustration and feeling of helpless as a mom that loves and cares for her kids deeply and to see then suffer with depression, anxiety etc. If you need someone to talk to ...I'm here

Please keep me posted. I will look into this Pokémon thing myself. When I was a teen, I tried suicide twice. One time I was in the ER. My parents came to visit. Looked at me and left. The hospital didn't send me to a psychiatrist. I am happy you and your family is getting help!

That's not easy at all. Could you call his therapists' office and ask them for a recommendation? Perhaps you need private therapy before you go into a group setting?
