The purpose of this article is to examine how anxiety and depression influence teens in high school who contemplate suicide and how the assistance of intervention programs generates awareness. Looking at the statistics and data over the years has shown an increase in suicidal incidents even though there are more programs today than in years past. Identifying the emotional and developmental needs of adolescents offers understanding of the mindset of a distressed teen. High school counselors are in position to address students in awareness, prevention, and intervention while positively influencing the community on the facts regarding suicide.
