Hormones go crazy and our emotions go all haywire making us feel like we’re on a never ending roller coaster. The need to fit in always takes a toll in our lives we become completely different people just blend in with others. There are times we will have to face problems and tough decisions and times we get really sad and emotional. But sometimes, those problems and tough decisions are also too much to handle and these sad emotions last longer than a few weeks. Some teens don’t tell anyone about these emotions or any of these problems. They are scared people are going to judge them and that there is no way out. Sadly, many teens find that suicide is the only way out. This is referred to as Adolescent Suicide.                        Why teens feel the need to commit suicide?
