There are more than 13 reasons to be aware of teen suicide risks.

With the popularity of the Netflix series "13 Reasons Why," many parents and educators alike are anxious to learn as much as they can about suicide prevention for young people.

Join us to hear from a panel of behavioral health experts with Willowbrooke at Tanner and learn more about the symptoms and warnings signs of suicide among teens and adolescents, as well as healthy talking points to help determine if a young person is contemplating suicide and actionable advice to know how to respond.

The program will be hosted in the Cartersville High School Auditorium in Cartersville.

The Willowbrooke at Tanner panel will include licensed counselors and therapists who have worked closely with teens and adolescents and have first-hand experience in treating young people with suicidal ideations. The panelists will include Meagan Thompson, LPC, assistant director of Willowbrooke at Tanner; Amanda Avella, LPC, program manager; Brian Gibson, LPC, a primary therapist; and Deb Price, LPC, CPCS, a program manager for community services.

The discussion will feature:
 - Current regional statistics related to suicide
 - Actual suicide signs and symptoms to watch for
 - Healthy talking points for parents, teachers, teens and peers
 - A question-and-answer session with the panel

The series, "13 Reasons Why," is carried on video streaming service Netflix and follows teenager Clay Jensen as he tries to unravel the reasons his friend and classmate, Hannah Baker, decided to commit suicide. The series has struck a chord with many young people, making the subject of suicide a popular topic of conversation even among teens and adolescents who have not watched the series.
