It's probably harassment/bullying. 16 year old Amy Inita was beaten to death in her Delaware high school bathroom over a boy just four days ago. With all I went through, I'm glad I don't believe in reincarnation, nothing is more awful than the first 18 years of life.

Social media can only add to the teen angst and mean girl mentality. I cannot imagine what school bullying is like now.

I work in a school and bullying has taken a very different form nowadays. But I would go further and say it's not just bullying as in calling names etc... I hear a lot about pupils being asked for photos of themselves (in varying states of undress) and relationships starting/ending via social media. Unfortunately, when rejection occurs, or a pupil does something they regret, it can have awful outcomes.

This year alone I know of two teenage suicide cases where I work. One made a serious attempt on their life and will have physical injuries for the rest of their life, another was more of a cry for help. It wasn't just school bullying, but more a complex variety of factors both at home and school. I would advise any parent of teenagers to attempt to build a relationship where their children can talk to them (sometimes easier said than done) as talking (and more important having someone listen) is invaluable.

It's the world we live in. The lack of economic mobility, the isolation of social media, the bullying enhanced by social media, the lack of understanding of mental health issues, the hyper partisan environment breeds it. Though its a complex issue and one that touches me deeply. If you think someone may be at risk reach outbe there no judgement

I lost my best friend who had been struggling for 6 years this past November

American society is and has been incredibly unhealthy for a long time, and these kinds of stories are just indicative of that. We really need to make serious changes if we want to reverse this kind of thing.

It's going up amongst this group because they are essentially weak people who never imagined that they would have hard times...They were WHITE, after all, and always believed that they were better off than those "below" them....They're the new "niggers" now, and can't handle it
