More girls are attempting suicide. It's not clear why.
“I think that is where people get confused about the suicidal experience,” Stage said.

“You can tell people all day long that they have this future and they can’t see it. It doesn’t matter how surrounded by people you are. You feel so isolated and alone.”

Stage is not sure if social media has made things better or worse.

“To me, the internet is probably the most wonderful thing that ever entered my life,” she said. “But at 35, I know what my boundaries are. I know what is going to make me feel bad if I look at it.”

Children and teens may get overwhelmed by the constant pressure to post, to show only the positive.

“Maybe they haven’t figured out how to balance in-person social connection with the internet social connection,” Stage said. “We can use technology in good and bad ways and we can just do life in good and bad ways.”

Suicide rates soar in the U.S.
What she can understand is why suicide is such a risk for pre-teens and teens.

“I think that life as a teenager is even harder than life as an adult. When you are a teenager, you are feeling things for the first time,” she said. “You don’t know how you are going to solve that problem, whatever it might be. It doesn’t matter what it is, if it makes you feel hopeless, it makes you feel hopeless,” she said.
