Most teenagers commit suicide due to a variety of factors. Bullying is a prime reason why teenagers begin to think of ending their lives. It can occur in the classroom or anywhere on the school premises. The bullies might resort to verbal bullying. Sometimes it gets physical too. When nobody steps in, it triggers thoughts of suicide to the victim. Parental divorce is another reason why problems begin to occur. When a beloved parent permanently leaves the household, it generates feelings of abandonment. It also destabilises the family household and removes one of their sanctuaries. Without any emotional outlet, they start to believe that the only option for them is suicide. Teenage suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Teenagers experiencing such thoughts believe that there is no future for them. A lack of long-term future and no way of being able to imagine a positive future leads to apathy. Apathy eventually moves to depression, which leads to suicidal thoughts.
