Finding out that suicide is the 6th leading cause of death in children as young as 8 shocked me recently. I'm curious if Hardin Co Schools have any sort of system in place to educate our youth on where & how to get help for this problem. Does anyone know? How do you feel about implementing a program to educate our children about this national tragedy? How young is too young to educate them?

Lol. The Suicde rate for all ages was 11.3 per 100,000 in 2007. For children 10-14 it was .9 per 100,000. Age 15-19 it was 6.9 per 100,000. 20-24 it was 12.7 per 100,000. To skip ahead to 65 and up it's 14.3 per 100,000. As of the latest available information (2010) the rate of suicide in the age groups you mention is in decline in this state. there were 8 total suicides in 2010 in Hardin County. Take a break on your moral panic for a second. There are as there always have been resources for children in schools that are suicidal. There's no sign of need for further than what is currently provided.

How dare you start your post with LOL! Do you think the 8 families of those who suicided are LOL at this time in their lives? I think not. You are a sick, cold hearted person to think that educating our children about the possible risks of attempting suicide is laughable.
Regardless of your pitiful statistics & I have doubts of the validity of them I personally know people who have children as young as 8 who have killed themselves due to being tormented by others or because of mental illness. The fact IS that children do attempt & succeed in killing themselves..every 100 minutes to be exact.

Frogg man didn't do anything but google and use the statistics from the one nearest the top. He must not have kids if he doesn't care how any die. So sad.

Yep. From the national institute of health a Federal organization. And the Relevant Tennessee information came from the state. But feel free to use a more reliable source.

Lol Cold hearted? Lol I was laughing at you and not them. You are a truly laughable fuckwit. So there's a suicide every 100 minutes for individuals 15-24 but where? In this country? On this continent? In this world? You doubt my statistics because you are personally bias? Could you possibly be anymore irrelevant?

A school system with a staffing problem won't waste money on an epidemic that actually isn't an epidemic in their school system.

You are a sorry ass excuse for a human talking trash talk about people who kill themselves. Especially poor little kids. Karma will bite your ass for that one day when it happens in your family. Let's wait and see how important it is to you then.
I see you run that shit mouth of yours on a lot of posts on topix. No one cares what you have to say because you got diarrhea of the mouth anyway.
Mmmhmmm

Looks like you forgot to take YOUR MEDS honey. Angry much? LOL You can't spell either sucker! Try to write a coherent sentence if you want to be taken seriously. I bet you're one of those kids that tried to commit suicide but no one gave a shit and now you're mad about it. Try again and maybe you'll have better luck next time. The world will never miss a loser like you. Boo hoo no one care about you. Cry me a fucking river.

For the Trolls following these posts.....
What a sad lot of sorry losers showing their ignorance. No one but the original poster seems to give a shit about the children killing themselves. That says a lot about the lack of consideration for people on this sick site. You people just here to stir up trouble need psychiatric help if the best you can do is comment to posts like this for no apparent reason other than to see your fake name in numerous posts on various topics.
Try to find a purpose in life other than mindlessly sitting at the computer day and night. Perhaps you can find group therapy if the need to chatter endlessly as you do here on topix is what you're searching for.

No, it's my real name you twit. Just like you use yours. If that's the most you got from my post add yourself to the list of Idiots. Hell, add yourself at the top of that list buddy.
Only a fool like yourself who actually GOT picked on at school would even think of such a thing! HAHAHA! Told on yourself.

What a sad and pathetic response. ZOMG the op seems to give a shit about kids. Well no wait he doesn't. His focus is after all solely this county and he failed to do any research in that regard. Try to find a purpose for your life other than monitoring topix.
