September 11–17 is National Suicide Prevention Week, a good time for conversations about mental health with loved ones. Reading about another person’s experience with anxiety or depression—two issues facing many of today’s youth—can be incredibly empowering as they learn to deal with life's problems, and remind them they're not alone.
For suggested titles, see our book lists for children or teens. And if you're looking for additional resources, feel free to ask Library Staff—or contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline or the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
