Many parents are not aware that teens think about death and suicide

NBC - Many parents do not realize teens think about suicide and death.

Researchers from Children's Hospital of Philadelphia interviewed over 5,000 adolescents and their parents.

The teens were asked if they had ever thought a lot about death, dying, or even killing themselves.

The majority of parents whose children said yes did not know their son or daughter had these thoughts.

Suicide is the second leading cause of death among adolescents.
