Eight Stories Up: An Adolescent Chooses Hope over Suicide 

 

By: DeQuincy Lezine (Author), David Brent (Author), 2008

(Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands' Adolescent Mental Health Initiative)

One of the authors personally struggled with suicide. This book is targeted at young people to help them understand what is going on in their life if they are considering suicide. It gives a clear explanation of treatment options and offers hope to those who are hurting. 

This book does not take a religious perspective on the issue, but is very informative and helped us understand what our son might have been going through.
