All of the above-according to the national youth violence prevention resource center, stressful life events oftentimes precipitate extreme reactions in adolescents and young adults including suicide attempts and completions. individuals who have been struggling with depression are quite vulnerable especially if they abuse alcohol or drugs as this lowers inhibitions and fuels poor decision-making resulting in deadly consequences. in some cases, teenagers and college students commit suicide after friends have killed themselves as they cannot bear the thought of living life without their closest friends. ulifeline is an excellent online resource center for college students pertaining to mental health issues and includes suicide prevention information. ulifeline - https://www.ulifeline.org/main/home.html
